Indeed, I keep my Aliant IP for very long periods of time. And with  
dynamic DNS and 5 minute TTLs, it is really a non-issue, from my  
personal/residential - if geeky - perspective.

On Aliant, 25 is blocked, in and out, but I have never had an issue  
with their mail server moving outgoing mail. One of my mail accounts  
is brought down with Fetchmail, the other being relayed through a  
no-ip relay to a high port.. Which may actually be better, with them  
having backup MXs and me not.

Quoting Ian Campbell <ian at slu.ms>:
