Good morning everyone

i want to use monit to check availability of an antispam service
(managed by others) from outside.
for this i added this config to monit:

check host my-name
       with address
       if failed host port 25 protocol smtp with
timeout 15 seconds then alert

but it doesn't work.
i keep receiving alert of service down by monit and in the monit log i
read this:

[CET Jan  5 09:38:46] error    : SMTP: error receiving data --
Resource temporarily unavailable
[CET Jan  5 09:38:46] error    : 'my-name' failed protocol test [SMTP]
at INET[] via TCP

note that smtp is up and running (tested from same server using telnet 25

any hints?
