Or it appears to have been accepted and goes nowhere. I've seen a setup
or two like this specifically for the purposes of tracking who was trying
to use the relay...
ie, one rabid anti-spam group blacklisted another because their methods
happened to conflict. It's rather amusing to say the least.
Unfortunately, it demonstrates that ORBS is a little more indiscriminant
than perhaps is good.
