    This may be a little off topic for this particular list, but I think
    it's related enough, one thing you could do since many ISP's are
    blocking port 25 for anything other then their mail server, is set up
    a VPN. The sales guys would hook up to what ever DHCP they have
    access to, VPN into your server and then send e-mail just as they
    would normally. I have set this up at my office because the owner's
    ISP blocks port 25 and they will NOT unblock it for her... Idiots :P
