Hi Jeff -
OK. Is there any reason for me to pursue this with Verizon? I.E. is there
any advantage to my company to relay the mail through Verizon?
Verizon has a reputation as a spammy ISP. (I just added another chunk of
Verizon netspace to my server email blocks earlier this week because of
spam.) You could be blocked because you are in Verizon netspace, but
Verizon's own servers could be blocked also.
So if you find a need to relay, for any reason, you're better off making
arrangements with an ISP that has a good reputation. You can have it set
up so that your email will be accepted for relay on the basis of your
static IP address. Sure it'll cost you money, but not that much. I'm
paying $24/year for this kind of arrangement.
