Both the lines with the "220" message is normal - it's a standard banner that all Exim servers use that just says "we don't support spam"

You haven't provided any logs yet that give a connection error, so I'm not sure why you can not connect. What error do you get in your mail client?

Finally got this stupid thing to work. Using advice here: Setting Up and Troubleshooting SMTP in cPanel | cPanel Blog

Bottom line, I'm using NO SSL, OR TLS ........Port 587 .....and my EMail Client finally asked for the password of the EMail account I'm using to send.

Finally after 8 months done with this crap.

Thanks for all the replies..........

And kindly do not give me any greeves about how this is so insecure, etc etc eetc.
