Check connection before importing

This request is used for checking whether Yandex.Mail for Domain can connect to the server source. To check the connection, you need to pass the settings of the server source (protocol, server port, whether to use SSL, and so on). If the connection can't be established, the response to the request will contain an error with the code no_reply.

This request should be used before launching an import (see Import a single mailbox and Import multiple mailboxes).
