I assume you're just changing the from tag in the OE configuration so that it has my at mydomain.com rather than me at myisp.com ? If you do that and leave their incoming/outgoing mailservers at myisp.com you shouldn't have any problems. > So, I'd like to know what sort of options they have.

If you leave it as me at mydomain.com you shouldn't have a problem sending it through the ISP's mailservers.. Gimme some more info and we'll work this out :) .djc.
