Telnet to mail server - MAC OS XDocument ID: 2405HQ
I want to telnet to my mail servers to make sure they are working.
1. Click on Go/Applications/Utilities folder/Terminal.
2. In the terminal window type:
telnet popserver 110 <enter>
You will get a "+Ok POP" server ready message. This shows that the incoming mail server is available and ready to exchange login and password information.
Then type your username:
<your username> <enter>
It should say "+Ok password required..."
Then type in your password:
It should say "+Ok you have ... messages"
For your SMTP server, type:
telnet smtpserver 25 <enter>
If you receive a positive message in the telnet window, Eudora should send and receive email. If you don't get a positive message, the mail servers are not working or not available. Call your ISP and check with them for a solution.
