I'm against this because of the risk of some idiot deciding to use our
SMTP server to send bunches of SPAM e-mails.  Add in issues with RBLs
and what not.

I should also add that this is nowhere near a fix as many ISPs have
started blocking SMTP access for their users to servers that they do not
control, for this very same reason.  So no, I don't think configuring an
SMTP server with worth the time and effort for a few people that are
unable to 'fake' the From: field in their clients.
