If you buy mail service from a provider, then you should use that
provider also for outgoing SMTP. If that provider (as you say between
the lines) do not support SMTP AUTH or STARTTLS, then change provider.
That Song as application service provider only support SMTP service for
the customers which are real mail customers, i.e. they have also POP,
is correct by Song. They do not do anything wrong. They do normal spam
I did not see anything in Johns mail about port filtering.
