Default elho localhost = NOTHING

Hello

When I type "telnet localhost" I am able to connect.
But when I type "elho localhost" I get nothing back. The prompt just sits and never returns anything.

I am able to login to an email account I created for a website but I am unable to send email. The system times out and then returns:
SMTP Error: Recipient not accepted. Verify your relay rules

Where should I start?
Regards
Russ

Yes for sure. That part works fine. It is when I get to the second command.

Good call on the log file. There are thousands of entries that look like this:

postfix/tlsmgr[4897] warning cannot open entropy device dev/urandom: no such file or directory
postfix/tlsmgr[4897] exiting to reopen external entropy source dev:dev/urandom


Some background: I followed the: "http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_centos_4.4

Talking Found the problem!

OKay after looking at those error messages for a few minutes I realized a problem. There was a typo:

tls_random_source = dev:dev/urandom
Should be:
tls_random_source = dev:/dev/urandom
Notice the missing slash?

Now I can send and receive email! HOORAYYY!!!
