    Hi,

    What do I need to modify to be able to send emails or connect by TELNET?

    When I try to make a connection in my server:

    telnet mail.myserver.com 25

    I get this error message:

    mail.myserver.com ESMTP Exim 4.85 #2 Thu, 25 Jun 2015 20:06:38 +0200
    220-We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited,
    220 and/or bulk e-mail.

    Can someone help me?

    Note make sure you end your data (text) with a period by itself and hit enter

    Hello :)

    This is actually the normal output, rather than an error message. You can search for "how to send email via telnet" on a search engine for several results, or use the instructions in the previous post.

    Thank you.
