One reason to choose a specific member of the SMTP pool is that both Telstra
and Optus have half of their machines listed in ORBS. First off, you should
complain to both companies for being boofheads, then choose a specific
machine (which may not work, btw, but it's worth a try).
You can tell if you're ORBSed by checking the headers of your SLUG mail as
it comes in. Instead of blackholing or moderating ORBSed email, we just add
a few X-RBL headers for good measure.
I get my kicks above the .sigline, sunshine.
