Some sites accept mail over port 587*, you may try that.
* - see RFC 2476

You'll probably find a lot of places block port 25 (smtp) outbound
except though the ISP's relay.   If your mail server accepts it, you may
have better luck with smtps on port 465.  Mail clients have different
ways of specifying this - it may be something like a checkbox for
'always encrypt'.
