You can telnet to port 25 (advanced) or simply start an email program like mutt and send a mail to "localusername".

Thanks Troel


My smtp port is open. How do I configure pop3s and smtps to run with postfix or sendmail??? I have a fresh install of fedora core 3. I need to use secure mail using smtps and pop3s. Smtp and pop3 should not be used.

How do I achieve this??

Thx in advance.
