    Hello :)

    It's possible the remote mail servers have blocked traffic from your IP address. Check with telnet to see if that's the case. EX:

    Code:
    telnet remote-mail-server.com 25
    Replace "remote-mail-server.com" with the hostname of the remote mail server you are attempting to send to.

    Thank you.

    when i tried hotmail it timed out but when i tried my other server it returned a reply, this means my box has no problem?
