And I respect your decision to accept that responsibility. I would also
do so quite willingly if it was a normal part of a mail server's load,
or even an option that most MTAs came with by default. Hm. Is it?
Postfix does. What about the other big ones? Which ones do/don't?
Addons and milters don't count.

out to exist in most MTAs. But thanks for your kind permission. :)
