Well I can receive email at my @ilmfan.com accounts but I can't send out. Telmex (the former state run phone company but still largest and main provider of phone and internet services down here), decided to close port 25 on all non-business high speed internet connections down here sometime around December 22. No wonder I couldn't use my work account from home either (had to work on the Holidays). About the most stupid decision ever.

It'll have to wait till next week until I can take care of this.

Gahhhhhh! Finally fixed this. Something I should've checked before, but my hosting provider has SSL/TLS available for my email accounts. Since SSL uses different ports, I can bypass the stupidity of blocking port 25 down here. So now I'm able to send as well as receive over SSL. I'm in likie Flynt ;-)
