    Whois your ISP?

    is it giving you errors?

    Did you select "login" for smtp authentication?

    I understand that, howerver some ISP's will block outgoing SMTP servers that are not theirs. SBC/ATT/Yahoo! is one of them.

    if that was the case it would have blocked it on all email client like Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, & Etc. I have used the ones of the list in the past successfully.
