Not referring to Comcast, but for Rogers which is also blacklisted by
a lot of people: their "smart" host likes to delay or randomly drop
outbound mail making it useless for reliable email delivery, and they
require you to send mail from a rogers.com address, which means you
can't use personal domains (like this one).

Actually, what you say is not true for Rogers. I've been sending mail
directly out of my Rogers-hosted machine for almost a year now, without
going through their "smart" hosts. This was one of the reasons I switched
to Rogers from Sympatico -- Sympatico locked down port 25 which forced me to
use their crappy mail servers, and I was easily losing 50% of my mail.
