In the UK, The Planet, who area  major virtual ISP for various household
ISPs do a similar trick, basically any traffic on port 25 automatically
gets proxied (don't know if that's the exact terminology, but that's the
effect) through their mail server -- I guess they claim that it helps them
track spam or whatever.

You could either run your smtp daemon on a different port (nasty) or use
ssh port forwarding (also nasty).
