So I've done all that, and am happy with it, but I did run into one
problem with email and wonder how other people solve it.

I couldn't send email to myself without it getting tagged by my own
spam filter, spamassassin, because the ip address I got from comcast
was in this huge block of addresses that some black list considers a
spam source.  So I ended up having to authenticate/forward my mail
through comcast's mail machines.  This is the only thing I use comcast
for, other than getting an ip address.  Are there reasonably priced
mail forwarding servers?  $20/year to forward email would be cheaper
than the extra $20/month I pay comcast over the price of qwest's basic
ip service plus dsl.
