It sends and receives just fine here. Is there a way to contact Charter and have them unblock that port? I just looked at the port settings on my gmail account, and you guys were right gmail is setup using TLS authentication, and port 587.
I really highly doubt that you can get Charter to unblock the port. As I mentioned before, it is to prevent spammers.
See if you can get your admins at work to set SMTP up on a different port, or set up SMTPS.
Another option is to use a VPN.
Or... just deal with using Charter's or gmail's servers.
