I think that says it all...  I have regular issues with the free email services,
requiring email exchanges with their IT groups. Every time they tighten the
SPAM/UCE rules, all hell breaks loose.  :-/   At one time I was even considering
just dropping all free email service subscribers.

I've run my mailman lists for over 6 years now on my own VMs hosted by LINODE.
Makes me responsible for my own IPs & their reputation...  I used to use Go
Daddy VMs, but they used a common out going email server pool, more like a
cesspool. Had lots of problems because Go Daddy IP blocks were always on
somebodies block list. :-(
