ISP blocked SMTP port 25
ISP's servers also down

 2:33 pm on Jan 31, 2007 (gmt 0)

ISP's have blocked SMTP port 25 where I live to prevent spam. Now up until today I have been able to use their server to send email.

Now this doesn't work and I can't get in touch with them so I'm stuck with a full outbox.

I've tried changing the port to 587 and every security option on and off for outgoing mail on my own domains but no joy.

Is there a work around or am I stuck without email?

I have the same problem, alot of ISPs do it now.

I believe with business acounts they open it back up.

You should call your ISP and see what your options are.

Hehe, got the answer after a few days of battle :)

My partner was in that situation (port25 disallowed)
