Default SMTP server timeouts

Hello, I'm trying to connect to an SMTP server using telnet via putty. Not just well known domains such as bigstring, aol, gmail, hotmail etc but also endless amount of not known or not popular ones. The problem is that although nmap says that port 25 is open, I can not establish any connection to ANY SMTP server (it just timeouts). Does anybody know a possible cause for this? I have tried disabling my firewall and using a proxy, but it still doesn't connect and now I've ran out of ideas. I also tried to disable my avast as well as legally used ip switcher program to make sure the problem is totally independent from my ISP. Its very important for me to get the solution to this, even if there might not be one. I have to do something to fix this problem and hopefully someone could help.
