Microsoft Remote Connectivity Analyzer is a web-based tool that provides administrators and end users with the ability to run connectivity diagnostics for our servers to test common issues with Microsoft Exchange, Lync and Office 365. The tool started as Microsoft Exchange Server Remote Connectivity Analyzer, and based on your feedback we've continued to add functionality to test connectivity with Lync and Office 365, and made other enhancements such as tests for Outlook Anywhere, Exchange Web Services, outbound SMTP, Office 365 Single Sign-On test, support for 10 additional languages and an improved captcha experience.
We're excited to announce Message Analyzer, a brand new addition to the Remove Connectivity Analyzer. Message Analyzer makes reading email headers less painful.

SMTP message headers contain a wealth of information that allows you to determine the origins of a message and how it made its way through one or more SMTP servers to its destination. To use Message Analyzer, all you need to do is copy message headers from a message and paste them in the Message Analyzer tab on the RCA web site.
