What's the error message?

 I was told by everyone not to change smtp to another port to get around the fact that my ISP blocks outgoing mail on port 25.


So, what I gather is that I need to create a new named port for sending email, so I've picked a new port.


Then, I need to configure send mail to use that port.


I added to /etc/services:


oml       port#/tcp           omail

oml       port#/udp           omail


Then I added to the dns records


omail.domainname         A          ip address

Domainnae                    MX(10)  omail.domainname


However, when I try to connect to omail.domainname from Outlook I get an error.


Were there any other steps I need to create a new port to connect to?


So I'm guessing, I have to replace smtp with oml in my and files.


Is there anything else I have to do?


Is any of this wrong?


Will this work?
