I had to double check my config. I never got around to forward outgoing
mail through my ssh tunnel. I'm still using the postfix relayhost parameter
to granting me my ISP's blessing to smtp out to the rest of the world--and
likely giving them a copy of all my outgoing mail and association it to my
account. So my outgoing mail is not tied with my vps ip, but my residential
ISP's smtp server.

There's also a chance that my outgoing email volume is too low to have
noticed any difficulties besides things like my ISP making changes to smtp
authentication (now only supporting tls on port 587) without any
notification. This address is mostly for mailing lists and forums.
