access denied when testing secondary MX

Post by manchester » Fri Sep 08, 2006 7:07 am

When i telnet into mail2.rollernet.us and i get the RCPT TO: < > i enter my email address and i get a "554 <mail2.rollernet.us>: Helo command rejected: bad HELO/EHLO command - access denied".

I just want to test before i go and get the MX records created with our ISP.

What the heck am i doing wrong?

PLEASE HELP ME....

What are you sending as the HELO? If you send the server its own hostname (or localhost) as HELO, it will reject the session.
