This error is pointing to Network Settings on the Mdaemon. Double check that box, make sure it has the correct subnet mask and internet settings.

Are you saying the Mdaemon box (mail1.eircom.net) does not have outbound port 25 open ? It will need this in order to send email to destination SMTP servers.

Your router (or firewall) is blocking it, yes open this port for the Mdaemon box only if possible.

You need to troubleshoot:
Do you have logs on the firewall ? Start there..
It could still be a firewall issue.

If you assign the IP address of the MDaemon to a laptop does it also get blocked from port 25 out?

no

this indicates that your firewall was configured to restrict the machine hosting mdaemon to the smarthost when it comes to outgoing connections on port 25 while all the other machines on your network can use it. additionally the error message indicates that the query times out while it should rather be explicitely rejected. refer to whoever configured your firewall in such a way

post the cisco config, i'm no cisco expert, but i should be able to help

obviously you can always use a different IP for your mdaemon, but this is really dirty
