You can, but I would advise you not to do it if you are sending from an ordinary isp account ip address, i.e. one where the reverse dns shows something clearly autogenerated rather than an meaningful server name. About 70% of all spam, and very little legitimate mail, comes from such addresses, so it's becoming a very easy target for aggressive spam filtering. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
