Geez, I don't mean to be harsh but is it *that* hard for a legitimate
business to get control of their own network? If they can't, why are they
doing their own mail anyway, why not hand it off to someone else and just
use a pop box with their domain and retrieve their mail that way? Why do
you need to run your own server if you don't have control of your own
network? I would rather have it so you have to have control of your network
and can therefore take responsibility for it before you can have a mail

If you can't control your own network (with inverse addressing, etc) then
you can't be responsible over it. The people who WANT to be irresponsible
don't bother getting control of any network segment then just jump on the
net and spam.
