I've done some research on this and found this solution for you. I will post more solutions as I find them and hopefully other members can help shed light on this issue, as well.
Use socks proxy servers
You can send e-mail using the socks proxy access to a computer on the Internet. This feature enables you to relay e-mail through other servers. When the message is sent using a third-party socks proxy, your IP address does not appear as the source of the message.
The best solution is to connect to your ISP's socks proxy directly if it is provided by the ISP. Some ISPs offer access to their socks proxy server. See if your ISP provides socks proxy access in the support section on their web site. If they do, you can use their socks proxy server address to configure the program to send messages. Their server's (non-dynamic) IP address will be the source of your outgoing messages instead of your dynamic IP address assigned to your computer at the moment your Internet connection is established.
Hope this helps!

Some other things I have found for you webtech, this appears to have worked for someone that had teh same issue as you, if you have WHM:
In WHM As root, click on Service Manager, which is under Server Setup.
Go to the bottom of that page and it will say "exim on another port "
Enter port "26" and enable that option by checking the box.
