At the command line, use the following syntax.
Code:
telnet -l username myserver.com

You should be using ssh unless telnet is required.

Port 25 on Mail Server !

Hi all

1) Is port 25 usually open or required open on any mail server?

I suppose it is a security breach, from administration point of view what purpose does it serve?

thanks
