This is laziness, on the part of your provider. I BOFH my clients. If
my clients want to send spam, they can go somewhere else or set up a
mailing list. No further discussion.

I employ these RBL's: spamhaus, spamcop, and None of my clients have problems receiving nor
delivering mail. Some of you see RBLs as ineffectual, but you are
wrong. My use of RBL blacklists has shown fellow sysadmins the way to
correct a multitude of problems.

But then again, I encounter webmonkeys who feel they are fully qualified
systems administrators; because their associates degrees, in graphic
design, bestows them such knowledge.

The only time my clients have been unable to send mail to others is when
the "others" DNS is not properly set up. An example:
