No - I don't think it would have much advantage over sending mail
out of your own IP address. Other than you not having to configure
it, I suppose, but it's not that hard to configure that bit.

I think the hard bit is doing the proper SPF and DKIM and DMARC and
so on and all of that is on you anyway.

There has never been an outbound mail relay for customer use.
