This is a restriction a lot of web hosting providers put in place, especially for shared hosting plans. I always recommend ModWest:

We have numerous customers running IEM on ModWest, with great success. ModWest even has a guide specifically devoted to setting up IEM on their hosting plans:

Even with ModWest, if your send volume is high (as your other thread suggests), you may need a dedicated server, or a VPS, rather than a shared plan.
