Hi Shri,

I am interested by how exactly you have used


Have you read that somewhere ? Could you describe step by step your

From the machine to be tested

% telnet relay-test.mail-abuse.org

and it ran some tests, told me it was fine with

"Tested host banner: 220 ganesh.internal ESMTP Exim 3.35 #1 Fri, 05 Jul
2002 16:32:33 +0100
System appeared to reject relay attempts"


I tried this and it gave me:
:Relay test: #Test 9
>>> mail from: <spamtest@207-8-229-57.pe2996-1.ppp.talon.net>
<<< 250 <spamtest@207-8-229-57.pe2996-1.ppp.talon.net> is syntactically correct
>>> rcpt to: <nobody%mail-abuse.org@[]>
<<< 250 <nobody%mail-abuse.org@[]> is syntactically correct
>>> QUIT
<<< 221 Pretzalz closing connection
Tested host banner: 220 Pretzalz ESMTP Exim 3.35 #1 Fri, 05 Jul 2002 12:12:09 -0400
System appeared to accept 1 relay attempts
