This is wonderful.  They up their prices, cut staff and take away our
ability to run servers.

It sounds like you have a work around.  I was wondering if you could explain
a little farther.  Are you saying you have a VPN setup from say, a server at
work and your home machine?  Are you able to maintain your mail server at
home because SMTP and or DNS is tunneled through your VPN and escapes
@home's filter?
