Then you're not using your home server as your primary mail transport.
It's nothing more than a staging area between your mail client and
something else. Convenient, and useful in many ways, but you just
confirmed my assertion that you can't cut your ISP or some other "real"
server out of the equation and still expect to maintain any sort of
reliability.

Thank you for your support. ;)
