In other words, you're going to have your own POP3 and SMTP servers
instead of relying on your ISP's servers.

Good news, David :)

We here use DSL also and have our own POP3/SMTP server and it works
fine, and at only 256k async too.

Currently, mail sent to MIDRANGE.COM goes to my ISP to be queued up.
Every 5 minutes or so, I connect to my ISP to download the mail via
UUCP, process it, and queue it up to be sent back to the ISP.  When
I send it back to the ISP, they do the actual sending of the messages
out to the internet.

When I have DSL, the mail will be sent directly to midrange.com and
will be sent out directly from my system to your mail servers.  The
ISP will no longer be in the mix.

I think so.
