I've just started to set up an SMTP server on one of my test boxes. Postfix is installed and running, however, when I try to end a message it just does not work. All the documentation I've seen says that when you insert a "." (period) on a new line in the body, the message will be sent. This just does not work for me, though. The program just goes onto the next line as if expecting more text.
