We have a problem here that AT&T claims that they cannot unblock TCP 
port 25 for u-verse business customers.  I have not personally had to 
deal with this, but two of my coworkers have called to try to get them 
to allow it and have been told that it's not possible.  Kind of a deal 
breaker for businesses that run their own mail servers.  Also odd given 
that it was a quick and easy phone call to AT&T to get them to turn off 
that block on my home DSL line.
