Hello,

Verizon is likely blocking port 25. You can test this by opening a command prompt and typing:

telnet <smtp server> 25

Replace <smtp server> with the smtp server in his email client's settings.

You should get a banner response from the server. If you can't connect, port 25 is blocked.

Also, in Outlook, Account Settings, More Settings, Outgoing Server:  Make sure the account is authenticated. So inside Verizon, the user will have to set the account to use Verizon's SMTP settings (may be a different port than port 25) and make sure the account is authenticated.

I do this for POP email. Also the settings and authentication above are common to many email applications, not just Outlook.

jjmck,

Something that I forgot to mentioned, we did run port scan on the router, all is good. No blocking, and it was working before that.

I use POP and I need to authenticate off my home network. Almost any email tool has these settings so take a look at the settings and try.

There may be something else blocking the mail in and out of China, so the above is just a possible solution.

He needs to have a verizon account to use their SMTP server, but the settings are available here: http://www.verizon.com/Support/Residential/Internet/highspeed/email/setup+and+use/questionsone/86782.htm#

Most ISPs block port 25 for home users in the US now to reduce spam. If he doesn't have a Verizon account to authenticate against their SMTP address, he will probably need to talk to whoever provides his email and see if they have an authenticated/alternate port SMTP port available.
