The problem with that is if your machine gets trojaned / compromised, as
is often the case and starts sending out hundereds if not thousands of
emails without you realising it. Yeah you could make it part of the ISP
T&C that you are reponsible for making sure this doesn't happen but
there are enough people out there who are not computer literate enough
to prevent this that it would probably be ineffective.
