When you say you can send email from linux > win95, what email program are you using?
From the win95 machine, can you ping your linux box?
from the linux box, can you ping the win95 machine?
are the two machines, i assume, connected on a lan?

Please check following files and read docs (man-pages) about them, it's really too much to post here
   
ftp:            /etc/ftp{access,users}
telnet, rlogin: /etc/hosts.{allow,deny,equiv}, $HOME/.rhosts

Then get back and tell us where you need help.
can you ping from both sides?

Try dmesg on the linux box, look up for something like telnetd and ftpd. In addition try to telnet your linux box on port 21.

I found that I can telnet to linux hosts from my win95 computer yesterday.
However, the respond time is very slow .
Moreover, when I use the ftp command on win95 computer to ftp to linux host.
I received "Connected to ftp" message only.
However, I cannot received a login request after  a few minute.

I just answered your first question before reading this one. So the information there won't be new for you. What is the configuration of your linux-PC. What time to you get when you ping the linux PC.

What programs are running on your Win 95 machine to accept the connections on the telnet and ftp-ports? I have an ftp-server-program running on my win95 machine and a gateway (to the internet) to accept on port 21, i can access my files on my win95 machine (those i have declared readable) and i can telnet to the gatewayprogram but if i deactivate those i can't access ANY service on the telnet and ftp-ports,
 
so short: Linux has by default programs listening to those ports, for windows you have to download some programms (and run them) to 'listen' to the ports

Sounds that you have network problems.
Please ping check what ping reports on both machines. Then use traceroute on linux and tracert on w95 to reach the other machine.
If all respond in resonable time basic TCP/IP works.
You then may listen on port 23 on you linux box as follows:

linux# tcpdump -n -l port 23
win95# telnet linux 23

So... you cannot connect to the win95 machine from linux. The problem is that win95 is not an OS that can  provide you a ftp server, but linux can. The same problem is with the telnet. That's one of the things that makes LINUX the best OS.
