How do others deal with this.

I was using one of the realtime blackhole lists but had to add a customer to my site that is using a sprint dynamic ip dsl connection.  So, now I have 10 more users who want to use outlook to send emails to my server.  But the realtime blackhole list blocks them because they are on a dynamic ip from sprint.  I'm just curious what others are doing to get around this.

Can you not configure your clients to send mail through Sprint's SMTP server?  I'm not familiar with the way things are done on your side of the pond, but that's how I do it here in similar situations.

The thing to remember is that you are not the only one who will reject mail from these dynamic ip's - more & more organisations are doing so.  IMO, in a comercial environment, you cannot allow mail to be so hit & miss.
