Exclamation Postfix telnet session hangs.

I've been following The Perfect setup for Mandriva and it states:

To see if SMTP-AUTH and TLS work properly now run the following command:
telnet localhost 25
After you have established the connection to your postfix mail server type
ehlo localhost
If you see the lines
everything is fine.

Up to this point, everything has gone smoothly.
After I telnet, I get
Connected to server1.xxxx.xx (
Escape character is '^]'.

and that's where it hangs...

I type in anything and it just hangs there, no commands work, only the escape character gets me anywhere.

Is there a reason it says it's connected, but nothing else happens or works?
Suggestions as to figure out what I've done wrong?
