    That log looks like it's for pop3 connections... downloading mail from the server not sending mail. And it looks like it was probably successful too.

    If you're getting a 0x800 error, then it's possible and likely that your isp is blocking outgoing port 25 to mail servers other than their own... to try to stem the flow of spam and viruses.

    You need to setup exim (in WHM) to run on an alternate port... I'd use port 225. I believe the Service Manager in WHM is where you can configure that. You'll also have to open up whatever port you use in your firewall.
