Re: SMTP Blocks

said by rchandra:

I for one do not think blocking TCP/25 in either direction is "reasonable network management."

I am inclined to agree with you, but "I for one" and myself for two probably won't pass muster. What does the industry generally do and (importantly) why do they do it?

I think enough ISPs block port 25 outgoing and enough mail administrators recommend doing so that ISPs would be able to defend an accusation of unlawful blocking as "reasonable network management."
