I am writing an SMTP client in node.js. I successfully tested it against an SMTP server running on my localhost. However I found out that I am unable to connect to gmail's servers. Trying it with telnet, I run into the same problem.
telnet gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com 587
hangs, and never responds. I do get a response on smtp.gmail.com, but that does not appear to be what I want. What am I doing wrong, and how can I implement it properly.
To make it clear, I am sending an email to a gmail account, from my own smtp server
