When i attempt to telnet machine_name 25 (exchange server 2003)  the command window goes black for short time then goes back to the c:\ prompt.  I can send and receive email fine.  This occurs from local pc (on the local network) and from the exchange server itself.  Any ideas?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Hi,
Check both places. Also verify that there is no other Firewall etc blocking it
Thanks

Telnet should be allowed. If you are on teh server, does telnet 127.0.0.1 works ? Also, check firewalls and check if Simple Mail Transfer Protocol is working. Do you have anti-spam software installed ?

I thought your PC was part of Domain and you were logged in with Domain User privileges onto the PC,
See I would not recommend you putting IP of your PC in SMTP Connector. Rather make sure that CheckBox is checked "Allow all that authenticate successfully" (sth like that)
