Try telnet like this:

[dan@ngaio:~] $ telnet 25
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
220 Sending unsolicited commercial or bulk e-mail to Microsoft's computer network is prohibited. Other restrictions are found at Violations will result in use of equipment located in California and other states. Sat, 28 Jul 2007 13:17:36 -0700
221 Service closing transmission channel
