I have port 80 open on Comcast now, but they are/were blocking port
25, which I had been happily using for years before they cut me off.
They told me that they were blocking it on my account in particular
because I'd been flagged for abuse (by having that port open).
Apparently it's their policy that they only leave that port open for
people who don't want to use it.  (At least, that was the impression I
got from the person I spoke to on the phone.)
