You state that your organization is a hosting toko only. Well, join the club; Peter van Dijk and I both work for the same organization which is also a hosting-only isp. We do not have open relay's in our network. Whenever a colocated server turns out to be an open relay I block port 25 on our border router. Being a hosting-only-party means that all our customers dial in through a dialup-isp. If you would name me one big dialup isp that does not have a relaying smtp server for their customers I might consider your argument a legitimate one. Please do not this is not a flame to you specific. I just feel that the single point of being "just a hosting provider" justifies open relays in a network. -- Sabri Berisha (This is my personal opinion, not that of my employer)
