Ah, I should have read this message first.

Since you're not bing blocked by comcast, the only way around this
is to relay all outbound mail through smtp.comcast.net.  It's
not hard to do, you still run your own mail server and you won't
get hit by DUL blocklists.

While I fully support the use of DUL blocklists on dynamically
allocated addresses, there is no reason to add static
addresses to a DUL.  Since comcast pseudo-static addresses
are in the same pool as dynamic ones, they are probably
all in the DUL.
