That makes no sense.  Plenty ISP mail servers are poorly configured.  
Known to drop mail.  Deliver mail too slowly to be useful.  Force users 
to use their e-mail address from that ISP.  Unreliable.

The list goes on.

If someone has their own mail server, that makes perfect sense to me.  
Why are some nodes on the Internet more deserving than others?  Why do 
you discriminate against those with cheap Internet access?  Why is a 
T-1 user more deserving to exchange mail with you than a dialup or DSL
