Question telnet command not found (Perfect Server ubuntu 8.04)

Very much a newb here attempting to learn on the fly and using the Perfect Server Ubuntu 8.04 guide to get a website up and running on a linode vps.

I used the available 8.04 image on Linode and began following the instructions on page 3 of the guide.

At the bottom of page 5 I'm told to

To see if SMTP-AUTH and TLS work properly now run the following command:
But I'm getting the telnet command not found error.

Did I miss something along the way for this to happen? Or am I an idiot missing something even more obvious

Help will be greatly appreciated.

thank you!

i figured it was something like that.

i actually had searched "install ubuntu telnet" on google prior to posting the question but found apt-get install telnetd

Not sure what that did, but it didn't work.

Thank you Falko for the help.
