FWIW, and you may not have this choice, in my area (outside Boston) we
have choices of carriers (varies from community to community). We can
choose Comcast, Verizon (FIOS), or RCN.  I have RCN, and they do not
(yet) block port 25.

RCN also offers phone and internet packages, i.e., NO TV for those of us
who are weird enough to want such a thing. Comcast doesn't even know how
to talk to you if you don't want TV...

Do you have a static IP address? If not, how do you get mail into your
server? I th ink the DYNDNS folks may have a service whereby if you park
your domain with them (or use an address in one of their domains) they 
can forward mail to you on an alternate port, so you may find such an
option as that to work around Comcast's stupid rules.
