    I have seen some older posts that allude to people once having the
    ability to relay mail through their PCS Vision cards. Unfortunately I
    am not having so much luck with this right now, but I am unsure as if
    it is the network configuration that I am using, or that they are not
    allowing port 25 traffic what so ever.

    Just to clear up any technical questions here is my current setup and
    what I am seeing as the issue:

    Sprint Network <-> Vision Card <-> Laptop Running SMTP Server <-> LAN

    If I try to telnet from an out side server, to the IP address that the
    wireless card currently has, on port 25, it will not work. If I telnet
    to the machines local address it will work.

    So there are two possibilities, my SMTP server is not binding to the IP
    address of the vision card properly, or Sprint blocks it.

    As a side note, the sprint people are lacking when it comes to
    understanding how the internet works.

    It's not the card. It's the mail server.

    Most (isp provided) smtp servers these days are configured to simply reject
    any mail relay requests outright if the connection is not originating within
    their own network, regardless of whether or not you are one of their
    customers and havea n account with them.

    Gmail will let you relay your outgoing mail through their smtp server
    regardless of the source of your internet connection. Although you will need
    to configure your email client to correctly provide credientials to log into
    Gmail's smtp server.

    Log into your Gmail account and read Gmail's FAQ/Instructions on how to
    configure your mail client to connect their smtp server.
