There _are_ messages that are silently discarded though: those with a size 
that is bigger than the limit, often because of attachments.
We sometimes miss valid mails to d-boot because of that (with installation 
logs attached).
The main problem there IMO is that the sender gets no indication that 
anything has gone wrong.

Also frustrating is the situation were an installation report (BR against 
installation-reports) is accepted into the BTS, but rejected by the 
mailservers, which means that we never get to see the report (at least 
not in a timely manner)...
