Speaking of port blockage, I know of at least three ISP's in my area
that do this; more specifically, they intercept all traffic on port 25
and if it isn't destined to their own mail server, it gets bounced
back as undeliverable. They even include a specific message telling
you that it must be sent through their MTA. Cox high speed internet,
the only high speed internet provider in my immediate area does this.
I have several linux and windows machines at my house on a LAN, they
all route mail to my internal mail host which runx Exim and I have
Exim configured to smart host all outgoing mail to Cox and it all
works well so far. Cox blocks even more inbound ports - namely FTP,
HTTP, Telnet and 25 SMTP. They don't seem to block ssh port 22 though:).
The best solutions for the best price!
