You can also add authenticated ESMTP on a higher port that lame-o ISP's don't know to stop, e.g.

in your sendmail.cf.  I find this very useful in the field.

The "submissions" port, port 587, seems to be the right port for this - it is designed for an smtp like interchange which is an "initial submission" of mail to a smtp server from what is ostensibly an end user (MUA) using smtp for mail injection, rather than MTA to MTA transmission of mail.

War is an ugly thing, but it is not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made so by the exertions of better men than himself. -- John Stuart Mill
