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
250-STARTTLS
and
250-AUTH
everything is fine.

Up to this point, everything has gone smoothly.
After I telnet, I get
Connected to server1.xxxx.xx (127.0.0.1)
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?

Thanks
