Why is CDO message not getting out to external addresses?

I have an HTML form which solicits data and then passes it to an ASP page which formats and e-mails data out.  It works GREAT with internal addresses within our company.  As soon as I try to send to an external address, or mobile device, the whole thing crashes and I get:

error '8004020f'
/form/CMS/lean/hitCount/send_notice.asp, line 46

Line 46 is my mail.Send line

Why can't I send out??

Please see code below:

        when = Request.Form("when")
        what = Request.Form("S_event")
        where = Request.Form("line_name")
        why = Request.Form("why")
        message="At " &when & " an " &what & " for the " &where & " line due to " &why
        set cdoConfig = CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")
        with cdoConfig.Fields
            .Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing")=2
            .Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver")="xxx.yyy.com"
            .Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport")=25
        end with
        set myMail=CreateObject("CDO.Message")
        with myMail
            set .Configuration = cdoConfig
            .Subject="Safety Notification"
        end with
        set myMail = nothing

you have use SMTP authentication for CDO mail fire.
you have to set below values

.Item (http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate) = 1
.Item (http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername) = HostUsrname
.Item (http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword) = HostPassword

I added all that, (used my username and password for login to Exchange)
Get same error as before.

Is it possible this server can't send out and we use another server for that??

Code works flawlessly with internal addresses.  WILL NOT work when I try to send to ANYTHING external (cell phone, e-mail...)

is there any firewall setup which is stopping external mail fire....

Not sure...I'm doing all this 'under the radar'
