WOW! Losing customers because of over-aggressive spam filtering. if I
ran that outfit I'd be sacking somebody.

There should at least be a way to opt out of any filtering.

They must be doing it on a global level, not a per-user basis.

If it works, leave it alone.

OTOH we recently had a problem here in Wyoming. Somebody cut some fibers
and I and a lot of other folks could not get to any site west of us,
which of course included google, Apple, M$ and a lot others. I was
astounded it was so widespread and there wasn't a way to re-route stuff,
but it was back up in a few hours.

Depending on remote sites can be a problem, but I gues it can save your
butt at times as well.
