Relay through your upstream (hierarchical approach)? i.e. Register
your server(s) with your provider, who is presumably trusted (registered
with the global system).
A bit of an aside: I recall AT&T Canada blocked all SMTP from exiting
their network (excepting their own servers, of course) a few years back
in response to a large spam. I don't know the details -- this is from a
response to a complaint I filed. Interesting idea, though -- you then
catch 'em when they attempt to relay through your server. And as far as
that goes, I've seen a system that worked quite well... Larry might be
familiar with it, as it was his.
