This is not surprising.  I'm an Earthlink DSL customer, and when I
alert them to misconfigurations that stop hundreds of their own IPs from
sending mail, they respond several days later with a form letter and
the problem doesn't go away.

If you get an IP in a certain range, you just have to drop and reconnect
if you want to send email through their server.  And, of course, their
dialup ranges (including DSL ranges) are all in ORBS, so you have to use
their mail server.
