I've seen my share of 800-pound gorillas (we're talking the 10M+ customer
range) who have bounced [email protected] and/or [email protected] due to 'mailbox is full'. So
it isn't just small ISPs in little corners of the world...

My favorite was an [email protected] bounce from a smaller shop that read something like:

451 <[email protected]> Mailbox Full of complaints, even though we nuked their butts 3 days ago.

(I'm sure many readers of the list know *that* feeling - you found and fixed
the problem before the first complaint arrives, but you still get deluged by
more complaints for another week or so...)
