Switching from SMTP port 25 to port 26 in email client

Many major ISPs are blocking outgoing emails. The reason they do this is to prevent you from using their internet connection for spamming purposes. You will still be able to send emails, but only by using your ISP'S outgoing mail server. To solve this issue, you can change your SMTP port to an alternative port. All our servers are now setup with an alternative port which is port 26. Below is the instruction on how to change your mail client's SMTP setting:
