Thanks, but..     Tech support at Earthlink previously told me that only port 25 would work for their smtpauth.  I tried port 587
from this location and it doesn't work, but port 25 works here and most places.  Any other suggestions?  I'm ignorant of these
things, but may have adequate references.  What reference covers ports and their uses?  I understand that firewalling, etc, can
close and alter doors.
