Why not have the state library do the right thing? They aren't sending
these as part of the mailing system(s) housekeeping functions, that is
... they're abusing the RFCs in a way, so... Wouldn't it be better to
get them to use a sane sender address? If they are afraid to have to
handle bounces... well, then they shouldn't be using amailing list at
Whitelisting "bad behaviour" == "accepting it"...
Yeah, I know... the users/clients pay the beans, but ... you could at
least ask them:-).
