Still no avail, I can't send email to gmail, icloud, or anywhere outside the server hosted domain. But if I send email to the server hosted domain it goes trough.

Here's my mail log :

They block SMTP and a few other ports for new users until we have a chance to verify them to cut down on the incidence of fraud and abuse.
Please open a support ticket and they'll review your account and get those ports unblocked.
