But as I explained, if the message has multiple recipients, it will still
be delivered if *at least 1* of the recipients is set to have spam
delivered. The message is only deleted if *all* the recipients are set to
have spam deleted.

This is done so that I don't have to split the message up into 1 for each
recipient, which would add considerably more complexity to the code and
increase the load on the server. Imagine what would happen if I blew out
each message to 1 recipient per message on a mailing-list server!
