I have never come across such service providers nor have I come across large
ISPs such as Yahoo.com and AOL.com offering such a program to other email
providers. We have simply gotten our servers whitelisted with these large
ISPs and made sure all of our mailman clients are legitimate. So our e-mails
are being delivered quickly without having to resort to some of the rate
limits techniques that some hosts impose on their mailing list clients.
