    Telnet question

    I apoligize if this is the incorrect place to post this but would anyone please tell me a server that allows smtp email sending via telnet. I ask this because i was reading a tutorial on this site that explained how to send emails using telnet. After an hour of googling i could not find any servers that would allow me to do this. Any help is appreciated.

    A lot of universities allow email through telnet. also, some companies (mine used to but we got rid of it sometime ago) but you would need an account on the server for knowing where it is to be useful.
    Everyone is going to die, I am just as good of a reason as any.

    Hi there,

    Let me help you in another way, and I will do that by asking a question:
    Is telnet the only command that you are aware of???

    If yes, then you need to read more (Read about trace root, and who is and .... ), also to know the most commonly used ports (http, ftp, ....) will help.

    Have tyou tried telneting to hotmail for example??????

    I think he is looking for something more like this:

    The question you should have asked is "How do I relay spam from poorly configured mail servers?"

    I am very knew to this and the only things i know is what i read...
    Yes i have tried telnetting hotmail like this (with no luck) :
    Code:
    o mail.hotmail.com 25
    and
    o smtp.mail.hotmail.com 25
    Also could you give me some links where i could read up on the trace root things
    A lot of universities allow email through telnet. also, some companies (mine used to but we got rid of it sometime ago) but you would need an account on the server for knowing where it is to be useful.
    And say i have a limited account on a networked computer in a university, would it be possible to find out the address?
    I think he is looking for something more like this:
    Yes, that would be very helpful but i do not mind finding it myself (I just need to know where to look)

    most places will not let you telnet in on port 25 (smtp) because it is a common way scripts can be written to send mass mail.

    A lot of spam comes from mail server "relaying" relaying is when a mail server will let you send mail without having an account on their server, and will let you send mail to a different domain name then the mail server you connected to. Since it is widely used to send spam this way, most places will not let you telnet in as described.

    If you would like to try it out for yourself, I suggest trying out linux or installing a smtp server on your own system and checking it out that way.

    why are you trying to telnet to port 25? from your original request it looks like you want to access your email account via telnet, and in many cases this is possible. but you wouldnt got to port 25.
