And how, may I ask then, is the MAPS RSS implemented? By which 
mechanism, and whose default server was specified?

Historically, the first feature was called (rbl), now superceded
by (dnsbl), and was introduced in sendmail rel. 8.9.1 (1998).

Okay then, perhaps you can come up with evidence to the contrary.

BTW Mathias, we did have a few users from Singapore. They were 
trying to avoid their country's strict censorship, and were relaying 
their private correspondence through our server, although they had
accounts there. I wonder why? Perhaps it was the fear of rattan
canes that made them do it...
