Re: Smarthost likely required

I'd certainly always recommend delivering to the right place, rather than via a smarthost, and that's what the setup in the articles will do, and why I kept the smarthost tips for the comments.

Clearly, from the comments this week and last, a lot of people are concerned about whether or not they're able to do this on their home connection, and it's worth providing some options - and tips about when they may turn out not to be so helpful.

But, yes, ideally, I'd recommend that you get yourself a fixed IP from a provider that will also let you set up rDNS for it
