Mikrotik RB750G here with RouterOS 5.0RC3

Since I'm on a cable modem with Port 25 blocked and I want an SMTP server at home, I'm now using the Router to additionally set-up an L2TP tunnel into PortableIP.com, grab a fixed IP over there, use this as my MX and DST-NAT into an SMTP server at home.

Also I'm SRC-NATting out everything to the cable modem, but the SMTP traffic back out the L2TP interface.

All of this on a $70 box, with a very fast CPU, and 5 GigE ports.
