There are other ways to take the load off of MailScanner.

You are generating backscatter, so you will get listed.

Keep the checkbook handy, as you will get listed again!

Then prepare to stay blacklisted. Sender calllout is considered rude by many
sysadmins, as it only transfers the load to someone else.
> Thanks to you all
I would only use smf-sav to check valid recipients, not sender callouts. But
that is me and my systems that AREN'T listed on backscatter!
