    I'm not really familiar with telnet but i would think [CTRL]-C would get you out

    do you mean escape out to the telnet command interface? control + ] does it for me OK. Not sure what the <CRLF> thing actually does, but that usually signifies pressing the Enter key.

    Cool
    <CRLF> - carriage return / line feed

    Ah, right, you're using SMTP manually. The <CLRF>.<CRLF> means literally this:

    * press enter
    * press .
    * press enter

    basically, have a line containing only a dot. My mail server gives this information instead of the <CRLF>.<CRLF> message:

    Code:
    Enter message, ending with "." on a line by itself
    which is a little more descriptive.

    CR/LF, CR, LF or <CRLF> when used in instructions like this are just shorthand for saying 'press enter' on any OS, generally speaking. Of course, they are different (as anyone who has had to use Windows text files will attest). In this case, it's not the OS but the SMTP protocol that's expecting the character.
