Exchange 2007 SMTP not working

Aegil asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-30
installed a trial version of Exchange 2007 on Windows 2003 R2. Pretty much a default install, however when I try telnet to port 25 on that server its not responding. I have tested it with a free SMTP Server and it gets through straight away so its not a network/firewall issue.

Any advice appreciated.

Im more familiar with Exchange 2003 so bit lost here.
