is that IP address a valid mail (SMTP) server?

If so, can you telnet to it on port 25?

How: open command line type telnet <ipaddress> 25

post the response here.

the SMTP is valid because it is the one we use to access our local mail on our mailserver.at

now for port 25 when i did the telnet thingy on port 25 like telnet 25
it is giving me this error:
could not open connection to the host,on port 23: connection failed
