Yes, this is why SPAMers can not use it...

Yeah, droping all the SPAM

Not right. Most ISP's allow sending with other E-Mails

For SPAMers you will get them very quickly if they use T1/E1 or
something like this, and they can be stoped bei RIPE for example. 

SPAMers from Dynamic IP's are different. 

Now, we know, that most SPAM does not come directly from the ADSL-
Account owner, because most of them are infected with Viruses which do
the SPAMjob.

Blocking MAIL from DUL/DSL is the right thing.

In August it was very silent, have only 2300 SPAMs gotten. Now we have
the 2004-09-20 and I have already 56.000 SPAMS. 

Most (97%) coming directly to my address linux4michelle@freenet.de and
around 80% of the SPAM is coming from DUL/DSL

Please note, that I have only an ADSL 1024/128kBit and my Fileserver
(Duron 1600) with fetchmail, procmail and courier-imap must handel it.
