  We have just started (this morning) blocking outbound connections to 
port 25 in an effort to keep mis-configured systems from turning into spam 
relays.  To be able to make an outbound connection to port 25 you need to 
be a registered mail relay (just a handful).  We do still allow inbound 
connections to port 25 so that our students on resnet can run their own 
mail servers.
