If people want to bounce crap around the net and fill my inbox with junk
that is their option. Please make sure that this is left off by default as
we all get enough bounces from badly configured mail servers and / or
gateway antivirus junk and we all know damn well that some people still
think this is a good idea even though most people know damn well that 99.99%
of the bounced emails are crappy viruses or spam with falsified headers of
some type
