I don't think there is a difference. The day will shortly arrive when we
all just set
         Warn Senders = no
I have been anticipating this happening for a few months now. If most of
the senders are fake anyway, there is no point in trying to warn them at
all. Sad, but true :-(
I'm not going to change the default value in the distribution yet, but it
will happen one day soon.
