If you do not have a Commercial Account with your ISP
and you are running Commercial OP's on your connection.
Your ISP are running a program that detect "Out-Bound" Traffic. ( Called Big Brother Caching Server ) they are able to tell if the outbound traffic is related to:
Web Interface ( Running a Commercial Web Server )
E-mail Traffic ( Send out a lot of e-mail )
Media Traffic ( Running a Media Server )
They will not touch your ports when "Mail" is envolved.
As they see it has a communication, and they cannot touch
Communication, it is illegal for them to do so.
If they detect that you are infact running
Web/FTP/Media Servers. Then yes they will continue to block all ports all the way down to your default ONLY ports.
110|25 <-- Mail
And the ports to allow you OUT
8080 --> Outbound Only
They can also terminate your account, and if they really want to be a-holes about it, they can take you to court and make you pay for the used/abused bandwidth, and man power
That is has taken to control your "Non-Commercial" Account.
So basically, you are playing with fire, and will eventually get burned.
