I get exactly the same result when I run the query from a shell account in the USA.

From the UK;

espresso:~$ telnet relay.verizon.net 25
Trying 206.46.170.12...
Connected to relay.verizon.net.
Escape character is '^]'.
421 SMTP service not available, closing transmission channel

From the USA;

bash$ telnet relay.verizon.net 25
Trying 206.46.170.12...
Connected to relay.verizon.net.
Escape character is '^]'.

Pretty conclusive blocking I'd say.

I'd love to say "you've got mail" in that annoying voice but so far it doesn't look promising. This is what syslog threw out;

For the record I'm sending email from [email protected] from a valid MX host for coffee.co.uk.
