Earthlink, blocks outgoing SMTP. You can use your local sendmail server
if you like, but you will have to configure it to use a smart relay to
send it to an earthlink smtp server.
in your sendmail.cf add
It's been a while since I've used my own smtp, but you should have no
problem with incoming connections to that port, so you should be able to
receive mail just fine.
