Because he doesn't want to. He already provides POP3/SMTP services to me under his own domain name, and why should he change his servers to permit me to send mail as if from another domain where I do have a "real" mail account?
I hate the free stuff (no POP3/SMTP unless you pay), I already have my own on another domain (for which I pay), and I don't want his (because I don't want to keep changing email addresses everytime they get bought out/sold).
In short, because if I have to depend on my ISP for my convenience, it won't get done, unless it's done their way. I use it for outbound only, I pop my mail from my other provider...
