This is a fairly new installation and when testing I telnet to smtp and noticed an odd smtp greeting, I changed the names and IPs, but the 220 line is untouched:


mypc:~ myusername$ telnet 25
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
220 **************************************************0 *******************

I have the option to not show program name and verison unchecked (ie, it should show it). If I do check it, then there's nothing after the 0.

SMTP greeting seems to be modified by 3rd party software (SMTP protocol inspector, application gateway or antivirus). All characters in the greeting are replaced with '*'.
