This is the wrong way to go as it does not solve a problem, in fact it
causes more. I use shaw as my ISP, but I _expect_ to be able to make an
SMTP connection to anyone I like. I use TLS + SMTP auth on my own
server and I would be very upset to be forced to use Shaw's SMTP
servers. SSL/TLS secured services are a good thing, especially for
remote/road warrior users where a VPN is simply overkill. Blocking
outbound SMTP connections prevents this.
Closing port 25 inbound to the end user does not really solve anything.
It is the outgoing traffic that carries SPAM.

Even if rejected due to being listed on an RBL, mail should bounce with
an error, not disappear. At least MS got that right.
Out of curiosity, what did the bounced message say?
