We mainly use MXToolBox to verify external DNS records for our various clients, and on occasion, check for email, domain blacklist when there is a client experiencing email bounce back or related email issues.
  • External DNS record lookups
  • Verifying if a domain has been blacklisted
  • Provides mail-flow monitoring and alerting
  • The free features work as designed, for a free service
  • It would be nice if they provided a partnering program for MSPs
  • The web interface hasn't been updated in some time
  • External DNS diagnostics
  • email flow diagnostics and reporting
  • Blacklist reporting and monitoring
  • This tool has provided only a positive impact when diagnosing list level external issues
MxToolBox is a bit more pricy, but it is an industry leader in email delivery and provides first level diagnostics of external DNS records

The site/product is well suited for a quick and free tool to diagnose any first-level external DNS and/or email-related issues. The monitoring tool and reports is a good first line of alerting when an email issue arises, so it can be dealt with in a timely manner, as a free service
