    Port 25 blocking is very common- It prevents open mail relays. If you are
    going to have your own server to connect to then you may wish to investigate
    the SMTPS protocol.

    You'll have to work out the other connection problems with your ISP. Since
    you hadn't used the system for a few days you may need to reset the modem
    and get a new IP # lease.

    Anyone outside my light-cone is dead to me. That's just a rule I have.
