Yes, I've had a handful outbound emails bounce because of that stupid  
blacklist. (I run a Tor relay and mail server from home on the same public  
IP)

Guy running the blacklist won't even allow you view his dumb-ass blacklist  
web page (https://www.dan.me.uk/dnsbl) from any Tor exit or *or non-exit  
relay node* for that matter.

Which is just pure idiocy because it takes about 10 seconds to circumvent  
the block for anybody with two braincells to rub together. (ever heard of  
GOOGLE CACHE ya JACK-ASS?!!)

Just goes to show you the mindset of the person running the thing IMO.

As for inbound email to an IP running a Tor relay, I have had zero  
problems that I am aware of. Just hit up mailgun or sendgrid for a free  
personal relay account or grab a cheap VPS to relay all your outbound mail  
through and you're golden.
