Subject: Re: [IP] IIJ "Improves" their service


the usual solutions are to use port 587 (see RFC 2476) on a proper mail server, or a VPN connection to your organization's network. The former is easiest, the latter also gives you access to intranet websites and other resources.

A friend of mine who suffers from the opposite problem (port 25 not blocked and most of the ISP's network blacklisted) relays his outbound mail via a rented virtual unix server. In Germany (where I now live) the going rate for those is 5-15 euro/month. Google for xen, linux-vserver, openvz or virtuozzo if you want to consider this option.

(Professor Farber: I expect omeone will answer much more extensively, so you probably don't want to forward this to IP. I'm surprised noone has yet.)
