I am intending to use this at out company, when I find the time :( http://software.libertine.org/tmda/ is Tagged Message Delivery Agent. The gist is that the first time you send email to the receiveing SMTP server is generates a request, which it sends to you, asking if you are really sure you wish to submit this email to the server.
