The stuff my mail server rejects is 100% spam. master is whitelisted
for most checks. The only checks that reject mail from master are
those generated automatically with a Sober or whatever virus in the
attachment, and among those only the ones that had such a huge hit
that my virus scanners couldn't cope anymore, so I extracted
a typical line from the Base64 string and use postfix's body_checks

I don't think I will change this, because master does relay those
(still) at an unacceptable rate, so I need to protect my virus

The solution, as you pointed out, is to tighten the policy of
master's SMTP acceptance.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
