SMTP issues with Exim mail server

May 28, 2015 at 3:02 PM
I am trying to connect to an Exim mail server and send email via SMTP.

I am unable to get server capabilities nor to authenticate. From looking at the output I believe it may be something to do with the fact that the SMTP servers initial response is still being sent / parsed?

The output log is:

14:44:14 << 220-server.xxx.com ESMTP Exim 4.85 #2 Thu, 28 May 2015 13:44:13 +0000
14:44:14 =>> EHLO xxxxxx
14:44:14 << 220-We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited,
14:44:14 << 220 and/or bulk e-mail.
14:44:27 =>> AUTH LOGIN
14:44:27 << 250-server.xxx.com Hello xxxxxx [2xx.1xx.2xx.1xx]
14:44:35 =>> AUTH LOGIN
14:44:35 << 250-SIZE 52428800

which to me seems a little strange.

Any help welcomed.

TIA
