That seems silly. Why count them when you can simply block them? When I had Comcast they disallowed any outgoing SMTP, except to their mail server, where it is easy to count them. Now I have FIOS, but I still route email from my home network over a VPN tunnel to a Xen VPS I run. Gary Duzan
Doesn't look blocked: $ nc alt3.gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com 25 220 mx.google.com ESMTP s1si19795832wia.9 ehlo julien.comcast.residential.com 250-mx.google.com at your service, [68.X.Y.Z] 250-SIZE 35882577 250-8BITMIME 250-STARTTLS 250 ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES ...But I agree that routing through a dedicated static IP is better. That's what I do as well. Just don't pick a VPS on amazon because the entire amazon IP range has been flagged by spamhaus and others.
