Telnet is a very simple program, not much to it.  If you are still looking for SMTP info, that is not part of the telnet commands.  Those are commands you send to a server using telnet and for that you have to look up SMTP protocol commands.

Example here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_Mail_Transfer_Protocol

sorry the comment above says smtp i thought you were wanting telnet?

this site has a good tutorial covering most parts of telnet, most tutorials are small because theres not very much too it.

ssh is much better :)

You can telnet to a host of other ports, including the smtp port, which requires a tutorial on smtp to use and decipher smtp commands as DaveBaldwin pointed out.  If that's what the asker might be looking for, here's a link:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/153119 (Yes, it's Microsoft.  And yes, it's telnet to smtp.)

I don't think there's a single telnet tutorial on all the possible ports that you can telnet to, but there are other separate tutorials that get you started on them.  Just search for the combined terms, such as  telnet to port 80 or telnet smtp, to find them.  Basically, you'd need to learn http if you want to telnet to port 80 and you'd need to learn smtp if you want to telnet to port 25.  Telnet is just a simple tool to help diagnose them.

unless he is meaning to telnet to the telnet service specifically in which case there are guides. such as the one i sent, telnet can allow you to control a machine as though you had local cmd access (almost) ssh is better in my opinion as i said before but otherwise see the link in my previous response

Some of @rgb192's other related questions have been about using telnet to learn about SMTP which is why I answered the way I did.

I had guessed that, based on your post, which was why I included a link about telnet to smtp.  It's more "advanced" than the basic telnet tutorials @rgb192 is referring to.

I am using telnet



>>http://support.microsoft.com/kb/153119



my mailserver requires a login (i think)

I sent messages but there is no 'from email address'
when I check the message in my mail inbox

maybe because I am not logged in

but how to log in
