I was just thinking that after I sent my post, but my girlfriend made me cook
dinner so I was powerless to send an ammendment :(
I really don't think ISP's should block anything. I'd much rather have a free
(as in GNU) and open internet where if today I feel like sending mail
directly well damn it I will! (and can with netspeed)
I just use the relay host 'cause it seemed like a good idea - offload all the
work to netspeeds servers and get my CPU 99% idle again - not that sending
mail really makes much difference there anyway!! I get free traffic to and
from the netspeed mail server though so that's probably where using their
smtp server is probably an advantage to me.
I was wondering in what cirumstances relaying or sending directly would be
more approptirate. Thats why I posted the question in the first place. Like,
in your case with the laptop, it does matter. Thats why the ISP shouldn't
determine what you can and can't access in my opinion.
