Sophos has a product called MailMonitor that performs the same function as
mailscanner with this option. When I was evaluating it I found it worked
extremely well. There was a verizon account that had been spewing hundreds
of sircams at us daily. That account abruptly stopped firehosing us 2 days
after I installed the sophos product. Apparently several hundred abuse
warning messages to the postmaster in 2 days made a difference. Before then
I had sent a few pleas to the abuse address but nothing was done. The
squeaky wheel got the grease in this case. This was such an effective
feature that I requested it as soon as I started using mailscanner.
I vote "yes"
