Thanks, Good to be welcome

I think (hope) I found the problem, following the installguide I was asked to test SMTP-AUTH and TLS by typing "telnet localhost 25"

this returns the following error :

telnet:could not resolve localhost/25: Name or service not known

During my first install I now recall taking this as good since telnet is not that secure.... but looking closer at the screen picture in the guide I see that that error didn't belong there...

My guess is that telnet is not running, and then I remember that earlier (as instructed by the guide) I had typed "update-inetd --remove telnet"

Any connection here ?

Thanks for your reply !

EDIT, PLEASE READ : apt-get reported that the package "mysqladmin" didn't exist, so I installed package "mysql-admin" instead. Have a blown it ?
