[PLUG] Comcast and port 25

Our sister work office had 2 complaints about not being able to access 
POP mail from home.  In both cases, Comcast (the remote provider) 
claimed it was because they closed port 25 `due to spam'.

I am a Comcast customer and haven't had any problems.

I have heard that Comcast meters traffic and that they're simply 
blocking the port period.  People here have stated that they can't run 
servers because of this.

Something about this isn't right.

Anybody know anything more about this?
