that's not the point, i understand the difference of *what* goes through 
a proxy - but frankly *if* it goes through a proxy somebody just knows 
the public IP and it has to be whitelisted *before* the enduser comes in 

abuse POP3 and error messages to find your connecting IP is just 
nonsense, especially in context of imit users to IP's - before WL them 
they can't connect (otherwise your design is broken)
