Not even if you use an SMTP AUTH session and clearly
establish your identity as a customer of Verizon?

Seems to me that an authenticated SMTP session tends
to narrow down the potential source of an email if there
is a desire to identify the perpetrator. Some people
might consider this to be a good thing.
