I think this is what's called an exaggeration, and a relatively
pointless one at that.

I admit that if I was writing an MTA, then I would follow the
traditional design philosophy. But I'm glad someone is actually standing
up to the RFCs, and sticking to them, for a change.

Allow anything to happen, and it will.

That said, I've not had a single mail message bounce off qmail's checks.
Perhaps that's because all those people I correspond with know how to
set up mail servers in an net-friendly manner. Your mileage may vary.

If you're going to spread FUD, I'd rather you did it elsewhere.
