Fetchmail will drop the message on the floor if it gets a certain set of
anti-spam responses when it tries to deliver the message.  Presumably
the idea is that the MTA can do things like check for valid sender
domains that the ISP may not be doing.  You can configure this option

       -Z nnn, --antispam nnn[,nnn[,nnn...]]
              (Keyword:  antispam)  Specifies the list of numeric
              SMTP errors that are to be interpreted as  a  spam-
              block  response  from  the listener.  A value of -1
              disables this option.  For the command-line option,
              the list values should be comma-separated.
