    Default I can send most domains except Comcast

    I have Comcast as an ISP. I'm using NAT and have all the ports necessary forward to my local IP. My domain is pointing to Afraid.org DNS servers and I have MX records for mydomain.com and mail.mydomain.com and an A record for mydomain.com.

    When I try to send from me@mydomain.com to my Comcast email address I get this in return:

    Code:
    This is the Postfix program at host mail.mydomain.com
    
    I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
    be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.
    
    For further assistance, please send mail to 
    
    If you do so, please include this problem report. You can
    delete your own text from the attached returned message.

    Should I change my SMTP port to something other than 25?

    I don't see what good it would do to change your SMTP server from port 25. This seems self-explanatory to me:
    68.52.XX.XX blocked by ldapu=rblmx,dc=comcast,dc=net -> Comcast.net subscribers are not permitted to directly connect to this mail server.
    That's your IP address, you're a comcast subscriber........

    Default Yes, I know. What else can I do about it.

    Yes, I know that is my IP. I was the one who hashed it out. I know what is happening (self-explanatory, lol), but how do I work around it. Is there another way to send to Comcast addresses using a Comcast IP and rolling my own MTA SMTP?

    As Comcast don't like their customers using mail servers to send directly to other comcast customers I guess the answer is no. The only alternative is to relay through another mail server that isn't on the comcast network.

    You will need to relay through another mail server to get around this so that the message originates from an ip not on comcast's network
