This behavior is exactly the kind of irritating misguided action which launched
my initial complaint.
The problem is that your server farm won't match my expectations for STARTTLS,
which then prevents me from engaging SMTPAUTH and sending my mail.
My mail severs aren't open relays, but, I am able to send email through them from
any non-broken internet connection.
The issue is the increasingly high percentage of internet connections which are
becoming broken. So far, the only "justification" for this behavior posted is the
inability of the folks in Redmond to deliver non-broken software such that a large
enough fraction of portable machines are able to "credential hijack" from stored
credentials on the machine and impersonate the operator while botted.
I really wish we could find a way to punish the folks in Redmond and the people
whose hosts are botted instead of punishing everyone else for their errors.
