Using Telnet to check smtp port

Hi

I am having an issue connecting to an smtp server. I need to check if port 25 is open

I have enabled telnet on my windows 7 machine but I am having difficulty with the command.

I have gone to telnet and tried o mail.domain.com:25 but gotten a response that it could not connect on port 23 which is the default for the open command.

Your assistance is appreciated.

Thank you. My firewall was blocking it. I have opened it but still can't connect. Will troubleshoot further.

Thank you.
