I've not done this before. Here's what I did. Please see if this looks
correct:

[root]# telnet mail.mydomain.com 25
Trying 209.216.9.56...
Connected to mail.mydomain.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 mail.mydomain.com ESMTP
HELO mail.mydomain.com
250 mail.mydomain.com
MAIL FROM suzie at mydomain.com
250 ok
RCPT TO suzieprogrammer at gmail.com
250 ok
DATA testing
354 go ahead
.
250 ok 1267194591 qp 11432
quit
221 mail.mydomain.com
Connection closed by foreign host.
[root]#

I didn't receive any message. Time for domainkeys?
TIA,
Susan
