Warning... Some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) commonly block the default port, port 25,  of outbound email servers so that you are unable to access mail servers outside of their control.  In some cases, you may need to make a modification to your email client to get around this block.  We have opened an alternate port, 8889, to accommodate this.  To change your Outgoing Server (SMTP) port, review the knowledge base article below.
