Not if you want people to accept your mail.  Thanks to Amazon's policy
of (a) allowing unlimited spam and (b) ignoring all abuse reports [1],
it's long since become a best practice to refuse all SMTP traffic from
amazonses.com, compute-1.amazonaws.com, compute.amazonaws.com and whatever
other subdomains they have/will have associated with that part of their
operation.

[1] Which they don't make easy to file.  Instead of accepting reports at
[email protected], like every other responsible, professional, properly managed
operation, they force complainers to jump through hoops...in order
to file a complaint...which they studiously ignore.
