[UPHPU] mail()

A lot of mail servers do a reverse lookup and judge the authenticity of the 
server based on the reply, ie. nothing with "dialup" in it, so typically you 
do want to get your mail routed through trusted relays.

The way I would do it is to set up a trusted relay with someone, and run 
postfix process on your machine which routes all mail through that relay. 
You can set postfix up to authenticate. That's what I've done from my home 
machine, which is on a dynamic IP, see www.mailhop.org
