How to fix Snow Leopard Mail 4.0 and cox SMTP smtp.west.cox.net server - The sender address was rejected by the server

This weekend I upgraded all the macs in my house with the handy dandy 5 pack of Snow Leopard.
Both my wife and son use morelweb.com domains with Mail.
After the upgrade no email could be sent.

I took a long time to figure out the very easy fix for this.
Edit the SMTP server list.
Find the entryfor smtp.west.cox.net
Click custom port
