I have been following that - most of it so far, I had already done. However,
when I get to testing the authentication with telnet, there is obviously
telnet borg2.lydgate.lan 25
Connected to borg2.lydgate.lan (192.168.0.40).
Escape character is '^]'.
220 borg2 ESMTP Postfix
# and there it hangs until I press Enter, when I get:
500 5.5.2 Error: bad syntax
221 2.0.0 Bye
Connection closed by foreign host.
That's not very informative. Does it suggest to you where I should be looking
Someone suggested that saslfinger would help me find problems. I attach the
output from that, in the hope that it means more to you than it does to me.
