Thank God Comcast doesn't do that universally.

 

Sent through Comcast to BQ via port 587.

Comcast (at least in the Seattle area) blocks 25 & 587 (they're "Comcastic!)

Authentication still uses port 25/587 and is unfortunately blocked as well.

I can setup additional SMTP ports in sendmail, but wasn't sure if there was
a method of doing this without loosing the settings after a mail-related yum
update.

 

Interesting... what provider is blocking 587?   587's sole purpose is to
provide a path of authenticated relay.  I've never heard of a major ISP
blocking it.
