If I receive list mail on the hylton@conacher address, I cannot reply to it from the conacher address bucause my ISP will not route the mail as they autheniticate the sender ie the sender hylton@conacher is not the email address of the connected member on their network and they therefore drop the mail into the ether.

Hylton, I see you posted from a global.co.za address - they are much
cheaper than most saix reseller ISPs - if they give you this sort of
crap, dump them and go somewhere else.
That is definitely an option, changin ISP. A litle homework reveals that the same ISP who I have my domain registered with is the cheaper and more business like ISP.

They *should* authenticate you
based on your network address. i.e. if you're inside your ISPs network,
you should be able to send from any address you please.
'Should' and 'can' seem to be mutually exclusive terms with this ISP :)

They're a big
company and I'm sure they have many small businesses as clients who have
their own domain.
But probably the ISP holds the domain, not another ISP.

Failing that they should provide you with smtp authentication.
You try and explain this to a previously disadvantaged. :)
They say that provided I am dialed in I should be able to send email from any email address, and this is the exact opposite to what what I have heard from the currently disadvantaged members of the call centre.

But I still say, considering what we have available here, dump them and
go somewhere else. I'd be happy to point you in the right direction.
PM me on some pointers although I think I'll probably go with the same ISP the domain is registered with.
