Let's not confuse two things, here. The customer wanting to host a Tor 
exit relay is a different service request than wanting to run a 
wide-open SMTP relay. No reputable ISP would agree to host an open 
SMTP relay and I'm sure this one did not knowingly do so.

It would be unfortunate for ISPs to come under the incorrect 
impression that hosting Tor is equal to hosting open SMTP. ISPs which 
might have been Tor-friendly at the outset would do a 180 and 
unnecessarily adopt a No-Tor service policy.
