Hm, are there companies out there that offer outbound SMTP services (for
people who are blocked, or which need a mail server thats not blacklisted
because their provider isn't dealing with spam problems)? I never really
looked into too much, but I haven't seen it offered on provider's sites
I was considering setting up a service like this (we have 2-3 outbound mail
relay servers that are sitting idle because we don't need them yet), but
wasn't sure how interested people would be. Like, say, setup a service that
offers people the ability to send outbound mail through based on IP ACLs,
possibly SMTP AUTH, TLS/SSL certs, and other things which could authenticate
the sender, and have it accept SMTP on various other non-25 ports.
