I own my own domain/server/subnet. My WISP customers can only send mail 
via my server, with all the prevention's I could think of. I have never 
been hit with this (but I do have small customer base), but I have had 
regular domains (like one local Bank!!!) blocked to deliver to my server 
because they do not have proper FQDN.
