Oh, so this is outgoing? Now I see.
I still don't think it's a good idea until we've checked that most
popular OS distros supply all their MTAs configured to accept on port
587, and we had better have a bullet-proof autoconfigurator for it.
MTA issues are the biggest FAQ that we don't have a good canned answer
for, and this is not going to make them fewer without a lot of
"cooperation" from MTA packagers.
On this family-oriented channel, I think it is best not to describe
the pain this will cause cPanel and Plesk clients.
