in short: yes, we do, for customers with high technial experience
(i.e. we can trust that they are by default doing the right thing [tm].)

We sometimes get requests from business customers, with own mailserver,
which directly receives email via smtp, for an outgoing smtp-relay.
I then argue with:
* Their server is absolutely capable of sending emails directly
* They have better control of the sending process.
* They can look for problem them self in their logs.
* Anti-Spam thresholds aimed at end users, not companies.
* They are not affected if another customer is spaming and therefore the
IP of the relay blacklisted.
But still, I then often get an "BUT... you are our ISP, isn't it your
duty to offer such a relay service? Other ISP do this!"
rly? Do other ISP still offer smtp relaying services to business
customers with own email infrastructure?
