Re: Comcast blocked port 25 (SMTP)???

I believe port 25 blocking is more about curbing spam more than bandwidth. 3000 messages is thousands of times more than a normal residential user will send on average.

Poster says he is RECEIVING 3,000 messages per day, not sending them. I was receiving close to that on one Yahoo! account, due to receiving "bounces" to spam sent as "from" that Yahoo! email address; even though I was not the sender (the email address was forged by the spammer).
