I use dyndns
they offer several services including outbound smtp, they call it "MailHop Outbound".
There is on other way to send email via an EC2 instance (as Justin said), some mail servers will take it, but many wont. I am not saying that DynDns is the only way, I mean that some sort of secured outbound relay needs to be used.

Hi Thomas,

Good question. ��Even with an elastic IP, you fail one of the first anti-spam tests carried out by most relays, which is a reverse DNS lookup. ��Regardless of whether you hold the IP forever, a lookup against the IP is always going to map back to an amazon host, rather than your own (since amazon controls the netblock). ��That discrepancy alone is usually enough to cause the major services to drop it ��:/

I'm curious about this too. ��Couldn't you hang on to an elastic-ip
address and remove it from any blacklists? ��Also, what's involved in
registering a domain specifically for sending smtp traffic and why
couldn't this be done for a domain mapped to an elastic-ip?

Thanks.

Tom
