A nice touch

When I tried to send an email on my new iiNet last night, I discovered that outgoing port 25 was blocked. This is quite common with ISPs, since it tends to prevent a good deal of spam and other malware activity. But it’s a nuisance for me, since I like to send mail via my own mail server.

But, unlike many other ISPs (not looking at anyone cough bigpond in particular), iiNet let you turn off the blocking if you know what you’re doing.

Nice touch.
