Something isn't quite right with your setup. When you do the "HELO" command, the server should reply with something. For example:
$ telnet smtp.comcast.net 25
Connected to smtp.comcast.net.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 omta12.emeryville.ca.mail.comcast.net comcast ESMTP server ready
250 omta12.emeryville.ca.mail.comcast.net hello [220.127.116.11], pleased to meet you
Does the mail server ever return anything back to you?
