Outbound smtp service


In these post (post 1, post 2) I described how outgoing mail was hijacked while using a public wireless access points.  I solved this problem by sending mail through a ssh tunnel.  It looks like DynDNS is providing a service that accomplishes the same goal.


Their MailHop Outbound service provides an outgoing mail relay service.  They provide this service on standard and non-standard ports to prevent mail from being blocked.  Also they offer SSL connections to make sure your mail is secure.  It looks like they are charging $14.95/year for the ability to send up to 150 messages a day.
