I am trying to use my own SMTP server, not my ISPs. Not only that, but
I AM trying to authenticate. As I said in my previous post, I can send
when dialing in to the 'net, but not when connecting from the ghetto
network I'm on here. Only SMTP traffic seems to be stopping/timing
out. I can receive mail just fine.
