Somehow I think that would go over like a lead balloon.  Hosting an e-mail 
server is explicetly against their Terms of Service which while I'm not a 
lawyer, I believe it well within their rights.

"You agree not to use HSI for operation as an Internet service provider, a 
server site for ftp, telnet, rlogin, e-mail hosting, "Web hosting" or 
other similar applications, for any business enterprise, or as an 
end-point on a non-Comcast local area network or wide area network." 

I suppose you could argue that your mail server is not for business use. 

Now I think their blocking of Bitorrent traffic should be a bit more 
actionable as long as you can demonstrate legitimate uses.
