$ /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_smtp --host q.bofh.de --verbose -t 30
220 q.bofh.de ESMTP Exim 4.72 Sun, 02 Jan 2011 22:59:58 +0100
sent QUIT
received 221 q.bofh.de closing connection

SMTP OK - 20,091 sec. response time, 221 q.bofh.de closing connection

As stated on IRC, your MTA seems to delay the answer ... raising the timeout 
seems to fix the issue.

With kind regards, Jan.
