  2. The error message indicates you are connecting from a connection
    owned by Gotadsl.co.uk, which is not the same outfit as NTL.
    In general, you are not allowed to make a port 25 connection to a
    server that is on a different network. For more on this policy, see
    http://www.postcastserver.com/help/Port_25_Blocking.aspx

    The workaround is to substitute your ISP's SMTP server.
