Comcast is trying to clean up spam coming from their networks without the blanket tactics of blocking all outgoing port 25 connections. Instead, they're looking to just block it at individual cablemodems. I'm not a virused up spam-zombie, so I should stay open. Comcast continues to do well by me -- they don't suck.
Unfortunately, I still need to send most my mail through their mail servers, since some hosts out there are blocking anything coming from Comcast's dynamic IP range. It's nice I can at least make the exceptions when I want, though.
