[ale] Sendmail and Bellsouth

I had no problem getting mail when I had the ports open to receive mail. 
This was about 6 months ago though. Doesn't incoming mail use port 110 
pop anyways?  The reason I changed to Bellsouth was that I am to far 
away from the CO to get the higher speed DSL.  The reason I stop 
forwarding the ports for email was that I didn't want to check logs 
everyday for hacks or risk getting spamed.   I figured out the puzzle 
and was done with it.  So now I just have to worry about the FCC ruling 
on shared copper access.
