In telnet
Microsoft Telnet> o localhost 25
Connecting To localhost...

220 localhost smtp4dev ready
ehlo nasdaq.com250-Nice to meet you.

250 SIZE
MAIL FROM: server@nasdaq.com250 Okey dokey
RCPT TO: client@nasdaq.com NOTIFY=success,failure
501 Must specify to address <address>

Even if I put angle brackets around the client email address it still gives me the same error message.

How can I test using telnet.

I hit this issue as well and found that Rob replied to a related post on stackoverflow, there is a quick fix at the end of the post:

Doesn't work:
helo me
mail from: me@here.com
rcpt to: somebody@mydomain.tld
Works:
helo me
mail from: me@here.com
rcpt to: <somebody@mydomain.tld>
