In my country, some ISPs block outbound SMTP for home users and they  
require those users to use the ISPs SMTP server for outgoing which  
happen to do antivirus and antispam filtering.

They will unblock port 25 if you provide  good and rational  
explanation why you need it open and that you understand that in case  
of problems you will be held responsible.
