On the SiteScope system, simply open a command window and use telnet to access the SMTP server, and then follow the steps from above, for example (from my box, all my input in red)
telnet vm17008.deu.hp.com 25
220 vm17008.deu.hp.com ESMTP Sendmail 8.13.1/8.13.1; Tue, 9 Jul 2013 12:17:46 GMT HELO vm25177.deu.hp.com 250 vm17008.deu.hp.com Hello xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx [xx.xx.xxx.xx] (may be forged), pleased to meet you MAIL FROM:<firstname.lastname@example.org> 250 2.1.0 <email@example.com>...

Connection to host lost.
That's a simple test to find out if you can access the SMTP server fine from the SiteScope system.
