I am trying to send attachments through telnet to test my mail server. I don't have an issue compiling general emails, just attachments. I have got a couple of questions that I hope maybe someone could answer.
Does anyone know of a GUI (telnet/email client thingy) that I could use to telnet into port 25 then send emails with or without attachments?
know of a tutorial/step by step guide on this. I have searched the web and my understanding is that the file as to be encoded in MIMe, BinHEx or UUencode.
I assume that you need encoding software to convert the file to the required format then paste it under the DATA entry on the telnet session with the appropriate headers etc... Its the exact syntax or method that I am not too sure about. Also, the term BASE64 gets banded about alot with regards to encoding which is slightly beyond me.
Option one would be much better, however, I am not lazy and would be more than happy to learn / read more about how to do to manually if such documentation exists.
