    Trying to choose a host

    Here's what I need.

    I need to be able to send email from my domain using smtp over a non-standard port such as 2525 since my ISP blocks 25. I also need to be able to send mail as my hotmail account through this smtp. My previous Host allowed me to send mail as anyone so long as I authenticated and wasn't complained about (not spam).

    Here's the rest of what I need:

    linux
    php
    40gig transfer
    200mb storage
    pop3


    If anyone can suggest anyone, let me know. Thanks.

    Hmm. I'm not sure whether you can do that over cpanel.

    Cpanel can use port 26 is that any help? you would have to ask the host to set up exim on there but it can be done for isp's who block port 25

    Yes, that would help. My previous host used cpanel Eryxma and they opened 2525 for that purpose. Does anyone have any recommendations of hosts who can/will/do do this?

    guess, you might have to contact hosts individually to check if they provide such service or can they provide?

    I think it depends on how much you're willing to pay.

    What's your monthly budget?
    Thanks,

    It is possible with any server, with any host. You just must contact each host individually asking
    a) if they know how to do this.
    b) are willing to do it.

    Pricing seems a little high with this company.

    Thanks everyone very much for your input. If anyone here offers this and would like to PM me with the details as well, I'd appreciate it. I do warn you I'm still kind of a small fry for a hosting customer budgeting around <$10/month. But I do run a very low maintenance, no hiccup site without alot of bells and whistles. Thanks.
