And it IS the isp's concern. Most of them would consider running a mail server on a home-user grade cable connection to be in violation of their AUP if push came to shove, and they have every right to block you.

Next you'll block SIP if we start getting "spam calls"? Or any other
application that pops up and is used by the same people sending spam
today?
There is the issue of usability. Why does a Cable user on a dynamic
range need SMTP open?
Because I am running my own SMTP server @ FreeBSD, for example. It is MY
concern, not ISP concern.
