There's no need to actually do that during the SMTP conversation. All that  
is necessary, from the view of those users, is filtering the stuff  
_somehow_.

Furthermore, it's not quite as easy - remember, I said MX. The mail  
usually gets forwarded to another host (via UUCP). (Well, there are some  
POP3 users, as well.)
