Hi,

I am trying to TELNET into the smtp.vodacom.co.za (port25) service. (using a terminal)

I get a ;
"220 Welcome to vopfsc0605smtp2.vodamail.co.za ESMTP"
This is a good response. (the one I expect)

I am looking to ultimately send a mail through a terminal.

(this is usually done by sending "HELO/EHLO",
then MAIL FROM : mail@domain.ext
then RCPT TO: mail@destination.ext

etc where the smtp server should be giving reply 250 commands, but nothing is coming back my way)

Any help on commands to get a mail sent?? Thanks

Hey,

I have just done a telnet into smtp.vodacom.co.za 25 to see if I got the 250 Messages back.

I can confirm that the mail server is up, and returning the correct codes. See the terminal session below

Trying 196.11.146.149...
Connected to smtp.vodacom.co.za.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 Welcome to vopfsc0605smtp2.vodamail.co.za ESMTP
HELO tcpip
250 vopfsc0605smtp2.vodamail.co.za
MAIL FROM:<test@vodacom.co.za>
250 2.1.0 Ok
RCPT TO:<dev@microsoft.com>
554 5.7.1 <dev@microsoft.com>: Recipient address rejected: Access denied
QUIT
221 2.0.0 Bye



Hope this Helps
