Re: need a package maintainer for an anti-spam component


	Isn't anyone concerned about bouncing mail to a legit
 correspondent? My ISP was incorrectly black listed for a weekend
 (they thought my isp also provided the services toe neighboring class
 C network), and my mail to various people bounced.

	I was quite annoyed.

	I like the concept of the rbl, but not if it looses me
 business; I do not ever want to bounce a client mail even if they use
 a bone head ISP

	I have a sendmail.cf snippet that merely save the bad mail to
 an user called (imaginatively) spam. I never see the spam, I just
 skim /var/sppol/mail/spam occasionally to see if an usefule message
 got snagged.

	Closing the gate as far as telnet kind of services is great;
 SMTP is a different ball game.

	Am I the only one concerned about the intemperateness of the
 response? Anyone else who is worried about bouncing messages as
 opposed to filing them under spam?
