telnet mx4.mail.yahoo.com smtp
No response would mean that someone is blocking you out (either upstream or the receivers).
Tried that, it just sits on
simradusa# telnet mx4.mail.yahoo.com smtp Trying 188.8.131.52...
and never connects.
OK, so you can be reasonably sure your ISP is blocking port 25. You will probably need to configure your mail server to relay via your ISPs SMTP server instead-- change the SMART_HOST definition in /etc/mail/freebsd.mc and do a "make restart" in /etc/mail, and see whether that helps...
