Port 25 SMTP Unblocked over Home BB Network

As of today and anticipating the forthcoming Orange email closure Port 25 SMTPs of other email providers are no longer blocked by the EE Home BB network. 



This will be of interest to those users whose email provider does not provide as standard a non-port 25 SMTP. These are often domain and email hosting sites rather than the mainstream free email providers. 


I do wonder if the same unblocking has been done to the EE mobile network. So, if any of you with EE mobile and able to test port 25 could let me know it would be appreciated.
