    Sending email through telnet utility/technology was used in the ancient days.. hardly anyone uses it nowadays, but can be useful when in cases of non-availability of email clients

    Hi Alfie,

    The Answer is Yes but very difficult & as said above it is very lengthy process.There is only one way to do so.Actually attachment normally moved with MIME conversion & it is hard to convert message into MIME type.It can be done easily by using Unix but difficult on Windows command prompt.You can refer this to do this.
    RFC 1426 - SMTP Service Extension for 8bit-MIMEtransport .

    Please share your experience after doing this


    Regards,
    Sandra P

    Send a mail through Telnet!!

    You can send the mail using Telnet as well. Please follow the below mentioned procedure:

    1. The first thing to do is to open a connection from your computer to your mail server.

    2. telnet mail.domain.ext 25

    3. You will then need to declare where you are sending the email from:

    4. HELO local.domain.name

    5. Now give your email address:

    6. MAIL FROM: [email protected]

    7. Now give the recipients address:

    8. RCPT TO: [email protected]

    9. To start composing the message issue the command DATA

    10.If you want a subject for your email type Subjectype subject here- then press enter twice

    11.You may now proceed to type the body of your message (e.g. hello [email protected] from [email protected])

    12.To tell the mail server that you have completed the message enter a single "." on a line on it's own.

    13. You can close the connection by issuing the QUIT command.
