as i have my own exchange 2003 server setup via a static ip with my ntl isp.

i do on my own exchange server:

telnet x.x.x.x (ip address) port 25 - this lets me see my smtp verbs are installed correctly informing me that smtp is installed correctly.  as well as after running: /domainprep & /forestprep - i then run: orgprepcheck, which confirms to me exchange is installed correctly.

in order to confirm my (ntl isp) port 25 is open I do:  telnet smtp.ntltelewestbusinnes.co.uk 25.
this command lets me in, i then do a:  ehlo smtp.ntltelewestbusiness.co.uk - enter and i then see:

220 esmtp server ready
eho smtp.ntltelewestbusiness.co.uk
250-aamtaout01-winn.ispmail.ntl.com
250-HELP
250-xremotequeue
250-etrn
250-pipelining
250-dsn
250-8bitmime
250-size 15728640
250-aamtaout01-winn.ispmail.ntl.com

1. is this correct or should it look like mine below:

ehlo email-pri.dc1.local

250-email-pri.dc1.local hello [192.168.0.101]
250-turn
250-size
250-etrn
250-pipelining
250-dsn
250-enhancedstatuscodes
250-8bitmime
250-binarymime
250-chunking
250-vrfy
250-x-exps gssapi ntlm login
250-x-exps=login
250-auth gssapi ntlm login
250-auth=login
250-x-link2state
250-xexch50
250-ok

2. my domain by the way is currently not with (ntl isp), i am currently routing it through 123reg: masterexchange.co.uk, which is pointing to my (static ip with ntl isp)?

1. ok, should mine smtp verbs, which confirms to me that smtp is installed correctly, should this be identical to my (ntl isp), BEARING in mind the whole question as above?

Yes it looks fine to me. It is not necessary to be identical with ISP (they may not be using Exchange Server). The above commands will only add when you install Exchange Server

Yes, as I said it is not essential your ISP should have Exchange installed and should result smtp commands as yours.

You can test by sending couple of emails from your server to confirm yourself SMTP is working fine
