Here's another tale of undeliverable email. It seems that [at least] one
of those organisations you mention assigns IP addresses for its ADSL
customers from the same blocks as dial-up. Which means that
organisations using MAPS-DUL reject email from teleworkers (or indeed
people running businesses with an ADSL connection) who run their own
SMTP servers.

In which case, the telecommuters should use their organization's
mail servers with SMTP authentication (yes, authentication, not
pop-before-smtp).

If I'm a corporation, and you're my employee, you should be using
my VPN, not sending mail from your unsupported remote installation
running sendmail, qmail, exim, postfix, or whatever.

As for the business people, can't give you any advice there. Maybe
it's time to invest in some mail services from mail.com, Critical
Path, or maybe even your ISP.
