Mail sending error: Connection timed out

I am getting this error on one server: connect to[]:25: Connection timed out

and this on another server on the same machine: connect to[]:25: Connection timed out

Is this a problem with my machine's Mail Servers?



Howdy -- What you're seeing often occurs if your provider blocks outgoing port 25, which some of them do.

Are there any email servers you can connect to?

If not, you may want to talk to your provider to make sure that they didn't recently begin blocking it.

Yes they do; but unblock port 25 upon request.

Are you saying that you were able to request that they open up port 25? If so, did that resolve the issue you're seeing?
