Wifi FreeSpot and Outgoing email issues

Hello,

I have several clients that have a DSL connection to the internet that are using a regular broadband router to create a "freespot" for their customers.  The problem is that outgoing email sometimes gets blocked.  I have removed the port 25 blocks from the ISPs involved. Mostly SBC Global.  Anyone know of a workaround for this?

Thanks,

-John

Nothing you can do about it.
The ISP is probably blocking access to port 25 from outside of their network.

The only thing that you can do is setup an SMTP Server for your users to send their email through.
