I'd say 0.5% of my customer base contacts the helpdesk to setup auth and
bypass tcp/25 blocks using tcp/587. Another 2% use my webmail offsite,
and about 10% use webmail only (on my network or off).
Then there's those pesky gmail users. We should just block them. j/k :P

curious as these days not much is said overly much outside of the "Die
