since many isp's don't allow residential isp's to send out emails, i want to use my isp's native smtp server (smtp-server.hot.rr.com) to send out emails with sendmail; i don't know where/how to configure this, though....
i know that roadrunner and many other isp's are supposed to block outgoing on port 25, but i want to try nonetheless
hmm, didn't work; i successfully created the .cf file, but afaik, the roadrunner smtp server was not being used; when i try to email people at services like roadrunnner or aol, i get a mailer-daemon notice telling me that their services reject dynamic/residential IP e-mail transactions
web-based mail like yahoo and hotmail work perfectly, though
here is the mail i get when emailing roadrunner accounts:
(edited out: don't want people too many people to see this info just yet; the e-mail you will see if you try to send mail with a residential ip will be pretty distinct)
perhaps i'm looking at the wrong thing... it is the fact that i'm using my own smtp server that is causing problems, right?
