right ppl to contact is net4mail.they might have blocked mtnl ips. if gmail works this should too.also get yahoo.co.in account and check if pop3/smtp works on it.then u can fire net4mail ppl. its not mtnl's fault.good luckmtnl does not block any ports 25 or 110 or even any port!its the mail servers which block mtnl ips.

easiest way is to try gmail "send mail as" feature (see settings/accounts in gmail),setup POP/SMTP via gmail once and then forget! u can even setup mail forwardingfrom vsnl to gmail. so that ur POP/SMTP are both gmail and u can send/receive mailsof vsnl account via gmail.once setup, even if u keep on changing ISPs, it will work forever.
