Shouldn't customers that purchase IP services from an ISP use the ISPs

Also depends on how much clue said ISP has. I have a DSL-like connection
at home from a large LEC/ISP, but half the time their mail server either
doesn't respond or rejects me. If I was more concerned, I would just set
up my own mail server here and be done with it. As it is, I use ssh/pine.
But there's another good reason for customers to use their own mail server.
