OK, this suggests a few questions to me:

1. it appears you are saying that sending directly through my localhost's 
sendmail *will* work from different networks. Was that what you found? (I 
haven't tested yet.)

2. Assuming yes to #1 above, was it sending through sendmail that was causing 
people to blacklist you? I don't quite understand the technology involved 
well enough to see how this would be a problem.
