A lot of ISPs don't relay anymore because of spam. Say your ISP is
foobar.com. Their mail server where clients can drop their outgoing mail
will only accept mail coming from @foobar.com addresses. Since the original
poster mentioned people collecting mail (and assumingly sending) from
different ISPs (not the one the OP is on) they would run into this problem.
