If your ISP are so hopeless that they think blocking all outbound mail from their own customers is the only to control traffic I can only suggest you change ISP's ASAP. This is the equivalent of "the client services telephone hepldesk is mowed under with calls so we will just turn off the phone and ignoe all the calls"!!!!!

Subject: [exchangelist] Port 25

I am using Exchange 2000 and was suddenly unable to send emails. (No
problem receiving).

I eventually found out that to reduce the problem of 'Spamming' to their
customers, my ISP had blocked off port 25 and blythly announced that they
no longer supported mail servers like Exchange on this service (cable) and
- er - good luck!

I won't bore you with the details, but it is not a simple matter to change
either my service (can't go to DSL) or service provider.
It occurs to me that :-
1.   Others may have suffered the same fate as me.
2.   There may be a work-around for this problem.

Can anyone help me?
