how do I talk to my server and what does my ISP admin have to do with this?

When I wrote to hotmail about the problem, they asked me to do 2 things:

1. Have the mail administrators of my ISP contact them

2. Go to my mail server and manually perform a Telnet conversation from a command prompt


My ISP is comcast, but I don't use comcast mail. So why should Comcast administrators get involved? What do they have to do with it? And what is a mail server and how do I find it and perform a conversation with it?
