Establishing a telnet connection ubuntu 10.10 server

http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-ubuntu-10.10-maverick-meerkat-i...

The link I listed here is the instructions I have been using. Everything was going great until I typed in "telnet localhost 25". I get nothing except a blinking cursor.

Should I start over and redo everything? If so How do I get rid of what I already have?

Or is there something I'm missing here...

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)
