    is there a free service that enables you to run your own mail server even if you isp blocks port 25?

    What I mean is a free service that is the equivalent of what planetdns or no-ip gives? I understand their smtp server picks up mail for your domain then forwards it to your smtp server that is on a port other than port 25.

    The MX (Mail Exchange) record does not pickup the email, it just tells the connecting mail server of the name of your mail server. To change the port, the person would have to accept your email and then forward it to another port.
