I know you can monitor traffic - no kidding.  But you can't (out of the box) 
as easily monitor traffic on ports. He's asking for us to hold his hand.

If you want to give him a fish - go ahead.  I'm trying to teach him 
*how* to fish.  Maybe after he starts thinking for himself, his initial 
reaction will NOT be to e-mai the list.

What SMTP and POP3 servers are you using? 

BTW you can easily monitor traffic.

What do you want to monitor?  Traffic?  MRTG can't do that, only because

most host operating systems don't keep track of traffic through specific

ports.  Do you want to monitor uptime of the ports?  If so, MRTG is not 
the tool either.
