It is not blocked internal to Charter's network, allowing full access to
the Charter SMTP server.
This means that you cannot run your own SMTP server or access the SMTP
servers of other ISPs on port 25 from inside the Charter network.
Either use Charter's SMTP server or determine what alternate (and
secure) ports are available for your use on your alternate ISP.
