To the best of my knowledge, Earthlink only permits PPoE connections
and does not allow you to use your own box as a mail server.
And don't waste your time with their "technical" support. That call
center is now located outside Manilla and those folks don't know a
pop mail server from a lollipop.
I believe both Speakeasy and Speedfactory are willing to sell you
a static IP address, and do not block port 25. They are charging a
buck or two more than Earthlink does for PPPoE.
