    I have been following the Perfect Server Setup for Ubuntu 8.04, but I am not able to get a response from telnet. The only response that I receive is as follows:

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

    Then it just sits there. I never get the following line so I can type in 'ehlo localhost'

    220 ESMTP Postfix (Ubuntu)

    And when I mean that it just sits there, I left it alone for over 5 hours and never received a response on it.

    Anyone got an idea on what's happening? :confused::confused:

    Look at the mail log file you should see errors there.

    Um ... know idea what any of this means, but here is what I found:

    Feb 4 01:32:02 AOP1 postfix/smtpd[7892]: warning: SASL per-process initialization failed: generic failure
    Feb 4 01:32:02 AOP1 postfix/smtpd[7892]: fatal: SASL per-process initialization failed

    There is a problem is the SASL system check syslog to see what error sasl is reporting.

    The syslog just shows the same error over and over again. How far back should I look in syslog?
