Estimated reading time: 1 min

Yes, it is blocked, but we have a better alternative.

More and more often, mail providers and blacklists are blocking entire ranges due to unsolicited email. As a result, servers are getting blacklisted and emails cannot be delivered due to the IP blacklist of the server. In order to prevent this from happening to your server, we have taken some measures. We have blocked outgoing email on port 25, this is done to protect your email traffic and to prevent abuse on our network. As a better alternative, we offer Smarthost. This is a Free Outgoing Spam filter service that will allow you to send clean emails.

There are a few ways to send your emails:
