Forgive me, Jeff, since I think we've been talked about this before, but
I've got so many things going on that I can't remember the details

You're saying that the mail works okay if it's not relayed via Verizon,
correct?  Does that include sending to AOL.COM, YAHOO.COM, etc?

If you've got forward/reverse DNS set up properly (with the Internet, not
just your LAN) and you're not coming from account, I think you'll be okay
without relaying through someone else.

If you don't have forward/backward DNS, or are coming from an address
that's registered as a "dial-up" address, some mail servers might reject
your e-mail as spam.

I guess you can try it and see what happens, but be alert for problems.
