Yep. Here, I don't have any option: my SMTP packets go to the university
mail server, or they get eaten by the border routers. Seems fair enough,
really: allowing privately run MTAs directly is just asking for someone to
set up an open relay and get your whole site blacklisted!

(Our routers implement the RBL, blocking ALL net traffic from blacklisted
subnets. Harsh, but it tends to get the message across about not allowing

One UK ISP just diverts all SMTP traffic into their mailservers anyway, as
well as using a transparent WWW proxy. Not one I use these days, although
it worked perfectly well - and no problems with MAPS DUL either!
