Re: Noobie Question...

Telnet is not outdated at all, and in fact I use telnet to debug mail problems at work every day.

You have to read RFC 821 and also RFC 2821 which succeeded it.

Don't forget to say HELO/EHLO to the server. I've come across some wierd and rude replies from servers that aren't greeted properly first.
