I didn't see any scalability problems when I was running the mail servers at AOL.

[It also doesn't scale particularly well]
Just because you bought bargain-basement lowest-possible-cost Internet access doesn't mean that you bought the right to set up whatever servers you want and to have completely and totally unfettered access.I thought I was buying *Internet* access anyway... shouldn't that mean I have the right to talk which hosts I want on which port I want?
If you want completely unrestricted access, then you should be prepared to pay extra for it. If you don't like that policy, you can always go somewhere else.
