when i try to telnet to my smtp server and then  try to send a mail from 
command prompt to my friend it says "Unable to relay for jyothiraj@xxxxxxx ( 
that is my friend address)

Why is this ??? 
What i mean is i can send to my friend  through outlook .Why is it not possible 
through command prompt?

I cannot understand how this is related with relaying.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks and regards
