 don't know what you mean by "speaking SMTP".  If you are referring to
sending the correct SMTP "commands" to tell it HELO/OLEH or whatever, I

disconnects...I don't even get the usual SMTP banner.  I'm going to
check out that link though, thanks!


Yes, this is what I was referring to ...




well, you can do a few things.

To see if you can send mail to yourself..

echo to: username |/var/qmail/bin/qmail-inject

you should have a test email in your mailbox.


To test your SMTP server.. with telnet..


telnet 127.0.0.1 25

response   trying 127...
         connecting
        Escape char...

you type helo homer

response 250 domain

you type mail from: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>

response 250 ok

you type data

response 354 go ahead

you type Subject : a test

you type this is a test

response 250 okay ...

you type quit

response 221 domain ..

response connection closed by foreign host

Now, if you get an error on the telnet commands, such as "Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused"

if you get this... your SMTP service is not properly configured.
