Hm, that is pretty darned irrelevant for most MailScanner
setups....:-). Seems to be more of a "service or appliance" protocol
than anything else. Apart from the required "catch rate of 95% with FP
rate of 0.001%"... Which all depend on the corpus, rules enabled etc

More like something the Steves and Jules might be concerned with for
the DefenderMX and possibly BarricadeMX solutions:)

Or perhaps one sould go with the "defaults setup" as described on
www.mailscanner.info/wiki.mailscanner.info :..:-)
