Same here.

Where we could get away with header parsing, we have.

Where we can not, we must use an IP, and if we need to, we will put up
a bunch of other shit as well since 99.9% of the customers we do web
hosting for also get all of their email from us, we can just run
virtual servers for them for their mail on their 'dedicated IP'.  No
biggie, the mail cluster is going in behind loadbalancers with the web
boxes, this will be easy.
