At the moment, I allow ports 20-22,53,79-81,110,143,443,706,873,993,
995,8008,8080,8888. Feel free to suggest others.

For each mail passed on to me, I also answered to 100TB.com so they
could close their ticket and pass that information on to Softlayer. In
every mail, I told them that I am sorry for so many automated complaints
coming in, that they should not turn my server off because of these
'spam' mails, and that it would be great to SWIP my IP range. No replies.

Too bad. I am willing to step in, but I am not located in the US, which
seems to be a requirement.

I am not so sure, as they didn't react to anything I passed on to them
regarding my legal status. I am now trying again to get them to SWIP an
IP range for me.
