in thread opening a telnet/smtp connection without waiting for response

I know my questions keep lookign suspect, but that truly is because I am testing spam related software. I can give you the company (openwave.com) but that is probably it. Yes the sending information before the banner should trigger some action by the server. In much the way if you pipe a file to telnet. I will try the Socket::INET and report my findings. Most of the problems I have been having is that all these modules need info back from the server before they are considered "open".

    bah, mundane details. Here I was digging deep for a problem on the surface. out SMTP fucntion explicitly waits for a return from the server, this is not in the Telnet object. So that was my problem. Oh well. Thanks guys!
