The SMTP server is refusing my connection attempts


Some Internet Service Providers are blocking the standard SMTP port (25 port) to prevent SPAM/BULK messages being sent from their networks. 

For your convenience, NBR-ONE-HOSTING has configured an alternative non-standard SMTP port . Please try changing the SMTP port from 25 to 26 or 587 and you should be able to use the SMTP server.
