The connections that will get this wont be delivered. Since I know legit
companies tried to send Im wondering if it a RFC issue or if it got
somethign to do with TLS. Im lost but after turnign on saslauthd it seems to
be less problems even if its not perfect.
But I really dont like it since I dont have a clue what it does.
