    I am trying to configure postfix as per their instructions ( ). Everything seems fine until the end when I test it.

    When I type "telnet 25," I get the following:

    [email protected]:~# telnet 25
    Connected to
    Escape character is '^]'.
    If I enter "ehlo" after that, it doesn't do anything.

    code with zhis code "'^]" and use this forum or google for the corekt
    code in this line

    Are there any errors in your mail log? What's in /etc/postfix/
