Are there any firewalls that interfere with SMTP Authentication?

Yes. Some types of firewalls will interfere with SMTP Authentication, preventing you from being able to

send mail.

- Disable scanning of SMTP traffic on their firewall.

- Or use their ISP's SMTP server to send outbound mail since most ISP's can authenticate based upon IP

address rather than username/password.
