Marvellous! We've got a load of customers who seem to refuse to use
their ISP's relays when sending mail, and because we're a hosting
company and not an IAP we obviously can't let them use ours without
jumping through hoops (a la pop3/smtp, or constructing an ACL of
every ISP they might happen to use...erm...yeh, maybe I won't do
that then).

Dean, can I have a list of your open relays? We'll whack in an RR that
suggests they're ours (not in the headers, of course), and point our
customers at those! You're a lifesaver!
