Are you able to receive emails but not send?

If you can receive mail but aren't able to send this means one thing:

Your internet provider is blocking you from using anyone's outgoing mail servers but their own. Many major ISPs are blocking outgoing emails. The reason they do this is to prevent you from using their internet connection for spamming purposes. You will still be able to send emails, but only by using your ISP'S outgoing mail server. Every ISP's outgoing mail address is different, but for the most part they will be smtp.yourispname.com For example, if you had Internet with Telkom, their outgoing mail server would look like this: smtp.saix.net If smtp.yourisp.com does not work and you are still unable to send emails, you will need to call your internet service provider to find out what their outgoing mail server is.

We also have exim running on port 26 for this very reason. A possible work around is to change your outgoing mail to port 26.
