Owen,

If you're doing the "right" thing, sending email via encrypted,
authenticated mechanisms, then you're doing it TCP ports 587 or 443.
Where Mike's mechanism obstructs you not at all.

If you're still doing the wrong thing, trying to talk to remote SMTP
servers on TCP port 25, why should his mechanisms not punish you?

Regards,
Bill Herrin
