Hello Experts,

I am struck in a position that I really need your help to move forward. I have a program whihc sends weekly newsletter via Zend mal smpt transport to about 2000 coustomers. At first in one hosting server it was working fine. But when I migrate it to a diifferent web server and configured the email accounts there. It stopped working . I get an error here with

Could not open socket .

My code which sends the mail is as follows. the same code worked before.
protected function sendNewsletter($from, $subject, $body) {
		$config = array('auth' => 'login',
                'username' => 'contact@piano-sheets.net',
                'password' => 'pass',
				'port' => 25);
		$transport = new Zend_Mail_Transport_Smtp('mail.piano-sheets.net', $config);
        $mail = new Zend_Mail();
        //$mail->addTo($from, $from);
        $mail->setFrom($from, 'Piano-Sheets');		
        $model = $this->_getMailingListModel();
        $mails = $model->findAll();
        if($mails == null)
        $counter = 0;
        $sent = 0;
        //echo $body;
        foreach($mails as $mailAdress) {
			if ($this->check_email_address($mailAdress['mailing_mail'])) {
				//print $email . ' is a valid email address.';
			} else {
				//print $mailAdress . ' is not a valid email address.';
            if($sent == count($mails)) {
            if($counter == 100 || $sent == count($mails)) {
                try {
                } catch (Zend_Mail_Transport_Exception $e) {
                    //print $e;
                    // Do something here, mail failed to send
                //echo $mail->getRecipients();
                $counter = 0;
		$this->_response->appendBody(Zend_Json::encode("SUCCESS: Sending mail finished. Newsletter sent on " . count($mails) . " mails! "));
