    Help with Telnet SMTP Plz?

    I was usint a tutorial i found on this site and it had a section about sending emails using telnet instead of a mail client. I tried to send an email to myself using telnet and it sent me an email, but it's completely blank. the from:, to:, subject:, and message that i entered are not there... anybody know why?

    I'm only about 90% sure, but i think the following format should work.



    HELO (your reverse)
    MAIL FROM :<testaccount@test.com>
    RCPT TO:<testaccount@test.com>
    DATA
    your message
    QUIT

    SMTP will only send mail if the server is setup as a relay.

    Real security doesn't come with an installer.

    when your finnished typing the body of the message you end it by typing a period on a line by itself

    .

    ^like that. then quit

    If you want to give subject in your fake mail, just type in the data (where you write the text of the mail) subject: Iam testing

    Output of a working example tested:

    helo
    250 mail.ahost.com Hello [127.0.0.1]
    MAIL FROM:aperson@stuff.com
    250 aperson@stuff.com....Sender OK
    RCPT TO:anotherperson@hotmail.com
    250 anotherperson@hotmail.com
    DATA
    354 Start mail input; end with <CRLF>.<CRLF>
    Subject: stuff
    From: aperson
    To: stuff
    Hello world!
    .
    Mail queued for delivery at some adress.

    Note that that you don't have to find a server that allows relaying, if you telnet to the SMTP server of the host your "target" is with and send a spoofed email that way you're not sending an email to a different domain. This is applicable on the hotmail smtp servers for example.
