Re: Check for blacklists

Which is why you don't ever send emails out directly via DNS (MX lookup) on a home line - you relay the messages to your ISPs (or someone else's) server for onward delivery. And the reverse inbound, i.e. your home box is never your Domain MX and only accepts inbound mail from the servers that are. Simple.
