I'm sorry to hear that (that Comcast is your ISP). I had a problem

all outbound port 25. I was able to call them up and (after lots of
wrangling and arguing with an Indian guy who said his name was "Mike")
get them to lift the restriction on my account. Anyhowm you should be
able to call up their customer service and get them to lift the
restriction your account.
It is Comcast (enough said?). I haven't been able to find any official
policy, but my guess is this is done to prevent malware infected
computers from sending out hundreds of spams. So, despite my good
intentions, I am being limited.
I am connecting to their mail server directly. I don't have the know
how of setting up a mail server directly on this Debian unstable
machine, nor do I really want to do that.
If you are running Sid, it is probably not a good idea to have a mail
server facing directly out to the Internet.
All the emails do *eventually* get sent out as exim4 goes through its
unsent emails, but I prefer to keep my logs uncluttered with the error
I see. Could you not just configure exim to not log those attempts?
