Can you connect to other SMTP servers, like the following ones? mx1.hotmail.com vger.kernel.org If you can't, then your ISP is probably SMTP access for you....

    Well, you could, but then noone would be able to send mail to you. SMTP requires that the receiving MTA listens on port 25.

    Well, actually, hadn't we already established that your ISP doesn't allow you to connect to port 25 on any other computer?

    Exactly, that is most likely because they're blocking it.
