death of email

Charlene wants a dropdown menu for the revamp of the Delightfully Cherished site. I was using the technique from A List Apart: CSS Design: Taming Lists, so before I just took code from the awesome JavaScript for the World Wide Web I went searching for something that was already using nested unordererd lists, and found it in Dave Lindquist's Using Lists for DHTML Menus.

By the time I got the dropdowns plus the tabbed appearance Charlene wants mostly working under Mozilla and Opera (sigh: IE[Wiki] introduces yet another set of visual glitches; CSS[Wiki] sucks!), I'd made a few tweaks to his JavaScript, and I wanted to communicate them back to him. He appears to have removed any email links to his site, and email is bouncing with a

(reason: 553 sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1))

I hate the overhead that a "sender pays" scheme would introduce, it'd make a couple of monopolies very rich, but I'm not seeing another way around it. The spammers have killed off communication and we're back to the small balkanized systems that we used to have in the days of FidoNet.
