    Hi guys, I have been following this tutorial about using postfix and mysql.
    My problem is when i telnet localhost 25 i get

    # telnet localhost 25
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.

    and then no matter what i type nothing happens. I cannot quit, ehlo localhost or anything. other than that, the tutorial was a complete success.

    Please enter:

    ehlo localhost

    and then hit the return key to get the smtp options listed. If you want to quit the connectione, enter:


    and hit return. If this all wont work, hit the keys [ctrl] + [c]

    Hi tim thanks but the problem is that I can't enter any commands. I get as far as above then no more. I followed the tutorial to the letter and my postfix does not respond after I telnet.

    This means that your Postfix doesn't have MySQL support. Did you see any errors when you compiled it with the quota patch?
