  • SMTP Protocol to send an email message.
    10/25/2010 7:08PM

    Ages ago, I used to know the SMTP protocol by heart but these days I actually telnet into a mail server to diagnose problems so rarely that I forget the details. I could have sworn I had put an article up about this, but can't find it, so here goes.

    Telnet 25 localhost

    HELO test.com
    
    MAIL From: test@test.com
    
    RCPT To: test2@test.com
    
    DATA
    This is a test body
    .
    
    QUIT
