I have a 2007 exchange server and I need to test smtp.

I tried using telnet to mailserver.domain.com 25 and I get the 220*************

but when I type helo domain.com I get 503 unrecognized command.

Hi,

That is usually caused by something getting in the way and blocking the traffic. AV, Firewall scanning SMTP traffic, try to disable Antivirus on exchange server and perform telnet.

and also there is one more tool available to check SMTP settings using Microsoft exchange Connectivity:

That is classic Cisco ASA device.

You need to disable the SMTP scanning functionality on the firewall.
