perhaps. But that is not what I have chosen to do, and setting
up a MTA is simpler, and easier for me to maintain, than setting up
a mail-relay accessible over the network. Now, if people want to
drop legit email based on the fact that my IP happens to be provided
by a dhcpd, regardless of content, it is their choice, and their
headache, if this happens to discard data they thought was valuable.
I don't complain that they are dropping my mail (unless this
is mail sent to a role address that people are supposed to be looking
at), as long as people don't hector me for running my own outgoing
