you can change the outgoing port. I have to use a specific outbound server because of regulatory issues all emails must be saved on a special server. So we checked the alternative ports that each email had and after changing the ports, everything worked fine...

A more complete solution is discussed here

If your e-mail service provider supports SSL, then you have every interest in changing outgoing smtp over to SSL's port number as that will be good for overall security and will also avoid having to redefine smtp servers when you travel.

Yes, wanadoo/orange is restricting usage of port 25 for outgoing smtp (to fight spammers) and you must use their smtp server over their broadband connection.Ask your guests to use webmail or reconfigure Outlook.Regards,Jeff
