Using DiscoveryServlet for debugging Connections Mail

When you install Connections Mail having a way to diagnose how Connections sees a particular users mail setup can be very helpful e.g. which mail system, which hostname, mail file etc. Digging through the network traffic in a working Connections Mail install I discovered calls to "DiscoveryServlet" which is a utility that Connections Mail itself uses for that purpose. It's so nice. When called it returns full info about the mail setup for the queried users (by email address). To call it you use the following URL:
http://<hostname>/connections/resources/discovery/DiscoveryServlet?email=<email address>

Use at your own risk and as Stephan would say - YMMV...
