No, Tor is smarter than that: your Tor client knows the exit policies

Ah, that's good to know, I had certainly hoped the developers wasn't
so careless as to overlook something like that.
If I had to pick a reason for your problem, it would be that only 2 of
the 700 currently running Tor nodes allow port 25 to exit, and these
are likely on all sorts of SMTP blacklists.
Hmm, if my webhost does block the TOR port 25 exit node, then it would
make sense they would had blocked both. Which means I should not be
able to send emails at all.
