	No, the message does not bounce because I am sending it from a
 dynamic address.  The message bounces because the recipient
 (or their agent) has taken direct action to _make_ it bounce.

	At this point, it is their problem. They chose to discard
 emails, and they do not care about false positives in their discard
 policy; that's where the bug lies, and that is where the fix must go

	Hell no I won't. I may tell her the next time I met her that
 her email interface was borked, but I won't jump through ridiculous
 hoops to help promote bad practices.
