For those of us that feel strongly that email should be a reliable transport medium.

Along these same lines, something that I thought about this morning.
Rather than bouncing with "From: <>", how about bouncing with "From:
<postmaster at bouncing.domain.whose.MTA.already.accepted.the.message>"

That way, when our users start complaining (even more) about their
addresses being sender spoofed by spammers, we can contact a real person
to complain about bouncing to a spoofed sender.

Julian, I realize you have already released 4.27, so this might be
something to think about for the future.
