help required,
i am trying to show how to telnet into a mail server and create mails for sending, and also how to retrive mails from mail servers. most mail service providers do not support relaying. hence i cannot readily send emails by using a telnet session and using SMTP commands.
can anyone suggest me a mail service where they do support relaying, so that i can demonstrate how SMTP commands work?

If you've got internet access at home, you should be able to telnet into your ISP's SMTP servers.

Some ISPs rely on client IPs for authentication, while others rely on a user name or password. If your ISP belongs to the second group, you will need to use the AUTH command.

hi,
i am using my ISP provided IP when i am trying to put the HELO command. that comes up good, and it recognizes me. but the moment i try to put the RCPT command, it starts giving off the relaying stuff, and that it does not allow relaying.
i have tried the AUTH command to get around it. but no joy
