We don't blindly accept messages. But we do send a bounce if the mailbox
doesn't exist, or if the box is overquota, or if the message is too
large, or delivery fails for any other reason. Some of these bounces
will be after the connection and the message has been accepted.
Email requires post-smtp bouncing, not just because of RFCs, but to work
properly. But I won't go further as this has been torched in all
directions on many many lists.
Suffice to say he asked if anyone dropped SpamCop, I responded that we
had, and stated why.
