I was think about that, but as I'm relatively new in this, I can not tell the difference between me having the wrong settings or blocking by my ISP
1. Change the SMTP port from port 25 to port 26 or some other non-used port like 3535 (the Google SMTP port to override ISP blocks
2. Ask your ISP which outgoing ports they block, other than for their own connected clients or search Google for port 25 blocked by ISP
(put the name of your ISP here - if you are on cable then there are not many ISP's who don't block port 25 plus a few others.
3. Try configuring sending mail from your server through your ISP's SMTP port 25 like you would normally do from within your email client - there is a Mercury configuration spot for this somewhere - then you will know if you have your server configured correctly - then just change the ports etc back to not use your ISP and check again.
I don't know if the Mercury logs will be of assistance but they are here:
Any without a proper extension can be dragged into your text editor to read them - your path may be different.
