TCP rate-limiting on outbound traffic to *:25 would also be extremely
effective, particularly on unclassified customer traffic, and without the
heavy-handed nature of denying all dial-up traffic. Rate-limiting doesn't
interfere with low-volume legitimate mail, but it really cramps spam.
It interferes heavily with transmission of large files via email, though,
and this *IS* a valid use of service.
