Right you are, but if Optimumonline is indeed blocking inbound port 25 
then it really isn't an issue.

Yes why not? I suppose if one wanted to have their own sasl enabled smtp 
engine for their treo600 or some other silly pda type dev. That would be 
reason enough, especialy if the ISP does block inbound 25. If this were 
the reason then I suppose point two wouldn't matter that much. But of 
course this is all just speculation.

You may like them. You will see. You may
like them in a tree.
How do you spell cooperation? Pessimists use
each other, but optimists help each other.
Collaboration feeds your spirit, while
competition only stokes your ego. You'll
find the best way to get along.
