My understanding was they were doing port filtering, and port 25 was one they
did do. I run my own email server was blockingthat port would be an issue
unless I could change to using another port (I think it is possible).
Several years ago I would get weekly calls to sign up for FIOS and on every
call I asked if they did port filtering. The typical reply was "um, I don't
know anything about that". I'd respond with "well, when you find out give me
a call back". I never got a call back... (I'd get new calls)
