I would like to test pop3 server with 1000-2000 simultaneous connections/sessions.

In other words I need tool which can create connection to port 110, login and make some operations.

Communication is without encryption.

For one connection I'm using simple telnet session and POP3 commands.

All hosts in this scenario are in local network.

HOST <--> PROXY <--> MTA

Any ideas ?

Thank you for your time.

I think about it to be helpful (as my first comment wasn't really helping, and by "wasn't really" i mean, "wasn't"), but i see no way to do that except with lot of computers. A program might be able to do that, some benchmark, certainly one exist for www, that you might be able to change for pop3, but i have no name to gave.

After searching in google I found http://mstone.sourceforge.net/. I will try to run it today.

If somebody had done some similar tests before (not only using this one tool of course) I would be grateful for hints.
