I don't follow, why do you say that?  Or maybe I don't know what an IPS is?

My current ISP  is Earthlink--when I use my email client, it uses Earthlinks 
smarthost (I guess that's what it would be called).

I don't use webmail often, but, if I do, let's say, use gmail from a web page 
(i.e., webmail), google handles sending it and receiving replies, right?

Then I get to see them by viewing the gmail web page, right?
