Do Plus.net block ports for e-mail servers? Help!!

I'm in the process of setting up a Ubuntu Linux server and all is going well.  I've finished installing Postfix e-mail server and have come up against a problem.  I can send e-mails from my server but I can't receive any.  Just wondered if anyone knew if Plus.net blocked ports e.g 25 and 110.
Thanks.

No, they don't.  You do need to make sure the ports are properly fowarded to the correct machine by the router (if any) for the outside world to access your server(s).

And ensure port 25 is not blocked by the Linux firewall.

And also ensure that ports 25 and 110 aren't blocked by the PlusNet firewall.
