SMTP Blocked through isp, alternates?

We have a user who is on POP3 and he really does not want to change anything he currently has.  We have installed exchange 2003 with OWA and everything works great.  

i understand that ISP's block port 25 and i understand why, but what can i do for this user who would like to stay pop3 and be able to send mail.  is there a relay server i can use? pay for? anything other then using OWA?

Hi there lgropper,

There are loads of *paid for* SMTP Services out there.  I have previously pointed people towards Gradwell
:  but I'm UK based so its a UK Company

But its a personal choice you can make based on price or locality.

Another option that you could do is just use the ISPs SMTP server. Is that an option that you could use? For example I am an ntl customer, so I forward all my exchange server email through the smarthost This option is in the smtp properties under advanced properties.
