Using the Debian Sarge "Perfect Setup" when I got to the part to "telnet localhost 25" I get:
server1:~# telnet localhost 25
Connected to localhost.localdomain.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.
The second time I try it doesn't close and I can enter "ehlo localhost" and nothing happens.
Here are the contents of my /etc/postfix/main.cf file:
# See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version

strec.com is the domain name I entered during the Debian setup and is not an internet domain.
Should I try reinstalling postfix? If so, how do I go about that to make sure everything is removed completely?
