I already have a POP email account that use. However, when I am on my Exede internet connection I can receive new email but I can't send anything. I am using Port 25. Is it blocked or something?

Hi Tab,

Most ISPs will block port 25 for SMTP traffic as a way of reducing spam. I would highly recommend that you switch to using TLS/SSL for both ingoing and outgoing mail traffic (POP/SMTP); especially if you are sending or receiving email over a wireless connection.

For SMTP, you'll want to use port 465 or 587 instead of port 25.

Or try port 995 if it's a POP3 account.
