Kia Ora Tatou,

We are experimenting on a network and trying to send an email
with telnet on an XP Pro computer.

We first type telnet mail.domain.co.nz 25
get a 220 xxxSPAM1.aspxh.co.nz ESMTP Mail Marshall message

we then type EHLO mail.domain.co.nz
and get a 250 message (xxxxSPAM1.domain.co.nz)
250 SIZE

We then type: mail from:name.name@domain.com

and are stuck on:
501 badly formatted MAIL FROM user - no "<" before I can even type the body of the message.

Do you suppose this is a MailMarshall problem ;o)?

How can we send a Telnet generated message with this problem?

Thanks in advance. :lmao:

This sounds more like your Internet Provider problem. I would contact them first -

Look at step 6 again.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
