I should probably have made the original question clearer. I can  
provide him with POP3 and SMTP but his ISP won't relay outbound mail  
if it doesn't use the domain name they provide, are transparently  
proxying SMTP so he can't get to my server on port 25 and seem to be  
blocking a fair number of higher numbered ports. Also he's  
fantastically technophobic so talking him through anything even  
vaguely exotic (like setting up a new POP3 account in Outlook) scares  
the living shit out of him :)

I've just signed up for the Oregon LUG mailing list - I assume  
there'll be a friendly nerd or two on there who have a pet ISP they  
can recommend.

Thanks all.
