[ale] Why Run your own email server?

My experience has been the same. We were blacklisted at least once but no more than three times, and it's been years since. I remember one of the things we needed to do was get our DNS all correct with reverse resolve on the IP address and long TTL values. And, of course, make sure no one is relaying spam through your server!

Actually, I've run my own mail server for 15 years, and if I ever had to 
deal with blacklisting, it's been years since. I keep an eye out, just 
in case, but it certainly hasn't been a tremendous chore.
