Default Postfix error

hi,

Im using the perfect setup howto for suse 10.1 (ISP/Server installation) i was doing ok till Step 7 Postfix With SMTP-AUTH And TLS. I edited /etc/postfix/master.cf, restarted postfix, called: telnet localhost 25 and got the following:
Code:
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 dude.spenguin.net ESMTP Postfix
421 dude.spenguin.net Error: timeout exceeded
Connection closed by foreign host.
Can someone fetch me an idea of what could be wrong and how i could fix this?

Thanks Alot!

When you see
Code:
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 dude.spenguin.net ESMTP Postfix
you must type
Code:
ehlo localhost
If you don't or wait too long you'll get this timeout.

This means that SMTP-AUTH doesn't work. What is the exact output?

Maybe you should compare your configuration again with the one from the tutorial.

Nevermind, I thaught it had to say 250-AUTH Exactly; but the exact output i had was:
Code:
[root@server1 ssl]# telnet localhost 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.
220 server1.xxxxx.xx ESMTP Postfix
ehlo localhost
250-server1.xxxxx,xx
250-PIPELINING
250-SIZE 10240000
250-VRFY
250-ETRN
250-STARTTLS
250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN
250-AUTH=PLAIN LOGIN
250 8BITMIME
Thanks!

Try handing mail off to the server before any DNS changes, see if it all works well:

# telnet localhost 25

> helo domain.com
> mail from:<user@domain.com>
> rcpt to:<user@domain2.com>
> data
> test
> .
