For the second time:  I'm not saying you have to move *all* your
services to another provider, address, or pipe.  Given current spam
filtering realities, you probably *will* have to find someone -- a major
ISP, a friend, a small botique mail services provider, foo -- to provide
outbound mail services.

Otherwise, I refer you to King Canute.

As I said:  $9/yr for basic SMTP services.  That's less than a dollar a
month.  If both control _and_ interconnectivity matter to you, I'd
recommend research.
