blocked external mail server


Hey guys,

I have just recently come across a problem where i can't access an email server for work emails - this has previously worked fine but has recently been rejected. I am on cable broadband and still have full access to my optus email and internet - no other problems to report. How can i tell if my IP address is being blocked, or could you suggest some other reason I can't reach this mail server? It's fine if i connect through my mobile phone data [Vodafone]

Thanks for your help and let me know what other info you might need.

If you run your own, where is it hosted? What kind of server is it (exchange, Gmail, etc?)
