No, You are not being blocked.

You are connecting to the remote server fine.

Do you mean blocked inbound ( to your server? ) or outbound ( sending to someone else from your server.. )

Sending would be fine as its not being blocked.

The Email Server is outbound, It’s located in China.

SMTP Host: smtp.ym.163.com
SMTP Port: 25
SMTP Security: None
