While looking into the fact of the matter (which appears to be
correct), I found this idea on the orbs web-page:
} Admins may alternatively set their systems up to tag messages
} delivered from open servers as "possibly spam", or just log the
} connections. What any admin does is entirely up to that admin. If

} which blocked you to disallow mail from open relays. Those open relays
} must comply with that admin's rules (not ours) in order to deliver
} mail to that site - we're just verifying to the admin whether a host
} is an open relay or not.
Would it be possible to insert an X-Header on email that looks
`suspiscious'? That way no-one has to be cut out of sending mail
to the debian lists, and those who want to can score down, killfile or
whatever to their heart's content.
