I don't know why, but I always forget how dedicated spammers are to
disrupting our world. Regular mail server has 25 open as not all domains
hosted on it are scanned by mailscanner. I suppose I could send them all
through and just not do any checks.

Guess I'll come up with something... Thanks Julian, you're always on the
ball. (Especially when the stupid simple answers evade us.)
