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.
