Test mail server connection via API

Hi,

We have the scriptrunner plugin installed allowing us to define custom rest endpoints. I want to implement an endpoint which will test the connectivity of an incoming mail server defined in our JIRA instance.

I see that there is a class which seems like it would help me do exactly that, com.atlassian.jira.plugins.mail.webwork.VerifyPopServerConnection

I had two questions regarding this

1. Would using this class be the proper way to test the connectivity of the incoming mail server?

2. If this is the right class, how would I go about getting an instance of this class?

Thanks

Are you checking health of the mail server?   There is a free marketplace addin that gives you that api access.

Mail Queue Monitor 

Yeah I want to check whether the connection is successful, like the action that is done when you click on the "Test Connection" button in the UI for editing/creating a mail server.

I don't want to add a plugin, because our instance is under heavy use, and plugins can have performance impacts.
