You can test an email port by using telnet to connect to the proper
port, which is historically 25 for SMTP; however, 587 is the new SMTP
port and more ISP's are turning off 25 and switching to 587. 993 is
the traditional port for secure smtp as well.
So you should be able to telnet from your box to whatever the open
email port at your ISP is and even see what email server software
they are using based on the first response.
