I just want to clarify that I was in no way suggesting that anyone bounce
spam - I was merely pointing out that if you choose to 250 a message, you
have to deliver it. The much better option is to 550 it after DATA if you
don't like what you see. Silently deleting other people's e-mail should
never even be considered.
