Censorship? Nonsense.

Running and maintaining a mailserver is a difficult job. Incorrect
configured mailservers can cause a lot of problems to others. So
everyone should be forced to use a providers machine as smarthost.

If your provider filters mail, adds advertisings etc... blame the
provider. Choose another. We don't talk about modifying content.

My provider allows "just" some thousand mails to be sent (sent! Not
received!). This is a lot more I can write, but whenever I cause a
mailloop it will not be endless.

Whenever I misconfigure my MUA and send mail with an invalid Reply-To
("ratti@local") my provider will not deliver the mail.

If I misconfigure my machine as an open relay and someone sends lots of
spammails from my machine, a lot of providers will not accept that mail.
And if I configured it to use my providers smarthost after some thousand
mails my providers stops it, see example 1.

Local mailservers are childish, dangerous and nonsense.

Bye, Ratti
