Well by proper SMTP, I meant an MX record for your domain pointing
directly to your mail server.
I think in this context SMTP push would mean that the MX record
points to the ISP's mail server. Mail is delivered to their mail
server via SMTP. The ISP's mail server then delivers the mail
to your mail server, also via SMTP. Assuming the envelope is
preserved, this will work fine and you won't have any of the
problems you described in your original mail.
