This does not have anything to do with wireless internet. Almost all
ISP check if outgoing SMTP messages are coming from their own network
or customers. For example, if your neighbor were using abc.com as an
ISP, and you have your outgoing email software SMTP server set to
smtp.xyz.com, it won't work. The server will detect that you're not
connected via xyz.com and reject the message as a relay attempt.
There are ways to get around this.
1. If your xyz.com ISP allows or requires authentication on send,
then you can send from any network connection.
2. If your xyz.com ISP provide POP3 before SMTP, then all you have to
do is check your mail BEFORE you send SMTP mail, and it will work.
4. VPN tunnel to xyz.com server.
5. Subscribe to 3rd part email service (Myrealmail, AOL, Earthlink,
etc, which authenticate indepently of the connection IP address).

Same problem. You can't post an NNTP server from an account on a
different ISP. In this case, if the ISP provides usenet news service,
both the login/passwd *AND* the source IP address have to be correct.
Your login/passwd is probably fine, but you're going through the wrong
