This info was found on the Internet and seems to work for those using SBC DSL
Sending Outbound Email SBCGlobal has started "blocking port 25", which means you have to send OUTBOUND email through THEIR server.
If this happens to you, you will find you are receiving email, but can not send email. You may get a message that your outbound mail server can not be found or does not exist. Since you are receiving email from that same mail server, you can be sure that it does exist and can be found. Since you can't SEND email out through it, your mail program is simply returning this error message to notify you that it couldn't send email using that mail server.
When you SEND email: You can only SEND email OUT through SBCGlobal mail servers. You can not SEND email OUT through any other mail servers except theirs.
When you RECEIVE email: You can continue receiving email at your domain name with your current settings. You do not need to change anything to continue receiving email at your domain name.
To SEND email, you must change your OUTBOUND SMTP mail server, under "Account Server Settings" in your mail program.
The exact setting depend on your SBCGlobal service.
Business DSL Customers have "dedicated" IP Numbers.
Residential DSL Customers have "dynamic" IP Numbers.
 
SBCGlobal Business DSL Customers
For SBCGlobal Business DSL Customers with dedicated IP Numbers:
Change your OUTBOUND SMTP mail server, under "Account Server Settings" in your mail program.
1. Specify SWBell's out bound SMTP server in your outbound SMTP server Settings (smtp.SBCGlobal.net) and
2. Un-check the "my server requires authentication" check box.
3. Save, restart Outlook, click "Send and Receive" and your email should go out.
Your mail should still go out "FROM" your domain name, it just goes out through SBCGlobal mail servers instead of CommerceStreet.com's.

SBCGlobal Residential DSL Customers
For SBCGlobal Residential DSL Customers with dynamic IP Numbers:
Change your OUTBOUND SMTP mail server, under "Account Server Settings" in your mail program.
1. Specify SWBell's out bound SMTP servers in your outbound SMTP server Settings (smtp.SBCGlobal.net) and
2. CHECK the "my server requires authentication" check box.
3. Select "Log on using" and enter your SBCGlobal.net email address and the corresponding password. This is the user name and password you use to access your DSL connection.
4. Save, restart Outlook, click "Send and Receive" and your email should go out.
Your mail should still go out "FROM" your domain name, it just goes out through SBCGlobal mail servers instead of CommerceStreet.com's.


YES, Your Email Will Still Be "FROM" Your Domain Name
YES, when people receive your email, it will still be "FROM" you at your domain name. The "FROM" and "REPLY TO" addresses are informational settings in your mail program, they do not result from the mail server you send mail out through. (This is why you get spam and viruses "FROM" people who really didn't send it to you.
NOTE: Some Internet Access Providers DO change your FROM address. This is typically limited to the "Free" or "Advertising Supported" ISP's such as NetZero and Juno. They may change your FROM and REPLY TO addresses to your email address with them to direct all return email through your email account with their server since they earn advertising revenue that way to. Commercial ISP's do not normally do this, and SWBGlobal does not.
