James 2.2.0 mail server blocked on port 25

I've set up James 2.2.0 mail server. I can telnet to port 25 on the server and send email to a user on localhost. I can then use a remote machine and retrieve that message using pop3. However, if I try to telnet to port 25 from a remote machine then it fails to connect, so there's no way to send an email using the server unless I'm on the same machine.

I'm pretty sure that this is the same problem that I had with qmail. See my question at:
    http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Linux/Linux_Setup/Q_21391747.html

The solution there was to add ":k2smtpout.secureserver.net" to the smtproutes file.

How do I do that in James?

Is there a firewall on this machine blocking tcp/25?

Godaddy.com actively blocks port 25 for hosted servers. Mail has to go through their servers.

That would affect outgoing mail...but should affect you ability to telnet to the server on port 25, unless you are trying this from another godaddy hosted server.

Hmmm. Locally I'm using WinXP SP2, so it has a firewall, but I thought the XP firewall only blocked inbound stuff.
