Hi Luke,

Disclaimer: I'm not a /real/ pirate; I'm more like what you'd call a  
sysadmin hobbyist.

Following the link to sorbs.net and reading in the FAQ:

Sounds like sorbs.net would prefer that mail from dashjr.org flow  
through the mail servers at kc...rr.com.  Assuming I'm not too dense/ 
ignorant, this raises the question:  Would RoadRunner accept outgoing  
mail from the dashjr.org server?  If RR won't forward the mail, why  
not sign up with an ISP that will?

I ask because I've never understood the attraction for the dynamic  
route (dyndns.org, etc.) yet there are quite a few folks who choose  
that. To me it seems like an extra layer of hassle, another thing  
that will break randomly during the Big Presentation, and saves  
little or no money.
