AFAIK at least in the area i'm in they have always blocked port 25. While it sucks its certainly common practice amongst ISP's all over the world.


Comcast and Cox both do this, it makes sense. Makes it a pain when you host a legit server, but there are ways around it. Using the ISP to forward through and to, going DynDNS (like I am doing) and going to a non-standard port (It actually works VERY well) or going business service level (which drops blocks period on the communication line, at least for Cox)

Comcast has been doing this off and on since 2000 (Google searches result in a lot of complaints about this action over the years)

Just my 2cents and exp on this...
