I had this on for awhile, using Postfix, and turned it off. Many of our
most important customers have mis-configured MTAs (Exchange of course)
using their internal name (always something like
exchange.clueless.local). I only use reject invalid and non-FQDN on HELO
and unknown sender domains (they need at least a valid domain in their
reply to address).
