	So, I think I have it backwards... You are trying to use an SMTP server 
from one provider on another provider's network.
	I'm going to guess than that the same issue applies. From a security 
standpoint, it makes sense to me that a network provider allows hosts on 
it's network to send mail via only it's own SMTP servers. That blocks a 
hijacked computer from setting up it's own SMTP server to flood the 
world with SPAM.
	No legal way around it, and I don't know of any other way around it. 
You have to use the network provider's SMTP servers for sending from an 
email client program. Or use a webmail interface.
