That doesn't hold much water, the server I've used since it went online in
1999 is running qmail, and doesn't reject very much, so I run mailfilter in
front of fetchmail, and if it 'deny's a msg, it just deletes it, no bounce
is sent, its a waste of time to send a spammer a bounce anyway. I have
around 2000 (and growing) full class D addresses and about 20 class C's I
reject because they send nothing but spam. So if I rejected it at the
server with mailfilter, your server would never see it. What it might see
is for the last 2 years, we've had a heck of a time keeping the various
winderz boxes clean, and somebody's office machine will get us nailed by
spamcop. That your server would see. Unfortunately I am retired now for
12 years, so I haven't a lot of control over that except to advise Jim he
has a dirty machine someplace in the building. Sales people have all been
advised to keep paper copies of their contact lists because if a machine
gets rooted, it WILL be formatted & reinstalled. We also run a open wifi,
isolated from any other inside subnet so help can bring in their own
rootkitted lappy on the weekends, and that has got us nailed for a day or 2
now & then.
Winderz machines are our major PITA, but training a salestype to use
anything else is impossible because all their clients run winderz.
So we are damned if we do, and damned if we don't.
