archives only updated daily and crawlers dont crawl overly often, so you
would not be able to check immediately if your message got posted.

if on the other hand you got a bounce message, you would know imediately
that yuor message was classified as spam, and probably even why. if we
start rejecting legitimate mail by lowering the spammassasin required
hits number, we should at least be courteous enough to send message to
users telling them why.
