    So, Mr. Admin, setup your laptop to use SSL to your SMTP and POP
    server and authenticate with a client side certificate on your
    laptop. Welcome to the 21st century. You may, however, need a little
    more infrastructure than you can pull from your favourite distribution
    box.

    So you made something wrong. My servers have public IP addresses.
    Wherever I am on the Internet, I can connect to them. I can
    authenticate myself as being me, and they accept my mails. No problem
    here. No reconfiguration, either.

    Come on people, stop whining. If everybody here is using mobile clients and
    different locations for mail sending and receiving, you should either

    - get a hosted or housed box with your own mail server
    - use a commercial web or POP/SMTP mail service
    - get an ISP which does have a clue and its mail server not in ORBS or RBL
    (they may, however not be the cheapest around)

    or (as mentioned above), set up a box with TLS, relay from everywhere
    and their neigbor with authentication to this box and then go out via
    a well known SMTP server into the internet.

    Regards
    Henning
