BT Internet and many other ISPs block outgoing email from their dial-up and broadband networks.
Additionally many other mail servers, Yahoo for example, block email arriving directly from dial-up addresses.
For these reasons you may need to send emails via a third party email relay.
Increasingly few email relays are free to use - and the remaining free services, termed 'open relays', tend
to be blocked by everyone else's servers.
There are two main ways around this problem:
- Use the ISP provided SMTP server, which may restrict you to emails within their domain name: email@example.com
- Use a commercial STMP service, of which the following are examples of:
charge from $24 to $24008 per year.

charge from $360 per year.
charge from £35 per year.
