Have found two plugins on Nagios exchange that can check an email loop.
I'm happy to work on it. Will test both plugins parallel and will see
which one fits best.

Not sure if we already have one of these but I was thinking about it
after the thing on monday with the forwards being screwed up.
a test account is setup pointing to an imap server somewhere.
we send an email to the account(a)fp.o every 10 minutes. The mail contains
a uuid generated for each mail.
the script checks to see if there is a mail in the imap folder
containing that uuid. If not it starts a nagios warning.
Surely someone else has written this test already, right?
if not - does someone want to work on it? It's a specific thing to test
and a finite project to work on, i think.
