Ok, so without port 25 I'm stuck.  I absolutely appreciate your clarity.

Just to be clear, the FQDN **is** mine, it's registered 
with but they keep and let users register 
subdomains.  There's even an option to fill out an mx form, so their 
intent is clear -- it's ok to do this.  Just not ok with my ISP.

Now I know that I can't do this without a virtual server, or a different 
plan from the ISP, so I won't waste time on it.
