The smtpmail docs says that the port can be either a string or a
number, but the code wants a number.  So change this:

 (setq smtpmail-auth-credentials
       '(("host.com" "25" "username" "password")))

into this:

 (setq smtpmail-auth-credentials
       '(("host.com" 25 "username" "password")))

and things will probably start working.

I also have this line in my customizations:

 (setq smtpmail-smtp-service 25)

If this doesn't help, post here the entire contents of the SMTP
session buffer.
