Telnet SMTP Escape Character

When connecting to an SMTP server via telnet (i.e. telnet 25), you will be informed that "Escape character is '^]'." This means you need to press CTRL-] (control plus right-bracket)

I am embarrassed how long it took me to realize that.

Thanks for the tip. I am also embarrassed at how long it took me to figure that out too!
