This BCP seems to be changing. The new BCP which seems to be evolving requires customers to authenticate to their home mail server on the MSA port and send mail that way. This appears to be being driven by SPF/Sender-ID-like mechanisms.
Let's encourage this. It's good for users. It's good for help desks.
