If you are using a wireless connection, you often need to avoid using
any connection method that uses port 25. Connections to this port
are often blocked if they cross from one internet provider's equipment
to another's before they reach the server. This is intended to cause
problems for spammers, but often causes problems for others as well.
Just trying all the ports is a very slow way to find a better one, though,
since there are about 65,000 ports available and only a few are likely
to accept outgoing mail.
