That might be the "easiest" way to go.  To answer your next message, my 
whole point was to get rid of the server in my house.  It uses about $40 
electricity per month and is noisy.  I am also paying for static IPs from 
comcast.  My goal was to free up the space that the rack takes, cut costs, 
and reduce noise.

My rPi fall back plan was to provide a minimal cost method of using a good 
reputation IP address, the current comcast one, to send the email out. 
Earlier I had asked about low cost servers and Bear Giles suggested the 
Intel NUC.  That may end up being the way to go ultimately, though I'd 
have to keep the server at home.
