Thanks.  Even with TLS, the destination port (either 25 or 365) is
well-known, right, as is the source IP?  At the minimum RBLs could be used
for that encrypted traffic.

dpi boxes from a number of vendors can do that sort of thing... whether
they can do it fast enough to be inline with your compute cloud is
another question entirely.

That said the result is fairly perilous when rejecting a message
involves forging packets. and of course tls supporting mta's will be
opaque to the network traffic inspecting device.
