At least here in DE there are resellers of DTAG which offer DSL connections
without any SMTP relay. If you want relaying you also have to order a domain
via them. More funny: you cannot deliver mails to DTAG (actually T-Online)
as the resellers use address space of DTAG and hence the DTAG servers
believe you are a customer of them and should use the internal relays ...
