My ISP blocks the standard port 25 for outgoing smtp, do you offer an alternate port?

Yes, YourHost.com has opened up port 587 for outgoing smtp port.  If you use an internet connection that does not allow you to send emails through a 3rd party email server using the standard port 25, you may manually change your outgoing server port within your email program to point to 587.
 
For Outlook 2007, this setting can be found under Tools => Account Settings => double click on the email account then click on More Settings, and then Advanced tab.
 
You will still need to enable outgoing smtp authentication, this setting remains unchanged.  YourHost.com's email server will always require you to have smtp authentication turned on.
If you have SSL enabled for outgoing, the port number is 465.  Make sure to change the outgoing mail server to mail01.yourhost.com if you enable SSL.
