Actually, it's swip'ed to me (I work for said ISP), but I also run a
SMTP server on my laptop which bounces usually between two addresses
(one at home, one at work), and I suppose that the work address (NOT
swip'ed) would have a problem under this proposal.
I DO understand the reasoning, but it is a **BIG** culture change, and
would take a year or two or more to implement network wide.
I think $100/year is STEEP, if it is PER SERVER, but per
COMPANY/INDIVIDUAL it **might** be acceptable.
(I have 3 boxes + the laptop that do SMTP regularly).
Ideas given this?
