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.
