In order to use SMTP on port 25, the mail server must belong to the
same outfit that provides your Internet connection at that moment.
If that is not feasible, there are three workarounds:
1. Use webmail for sending.
2. Use a port other than '25' for SMTP, if your mail provider has a
provision for that. Typical alternate ports are 587 and 465.
3. Get a free Gmail account, configure it for POP access, and
use it for your sending chores.
