No, since if it accepted it first and chose to to *reject* it later it
would be impossible to notify the sender of the message, since
firstname.lastname@example.org is undeliverable. By not acepting
it in the first place, we can pass on this bucket to a system that
should be able to so.
You might ponder kicking your ISP for rewriting your sender from to an
`What a good friend you are to him, Dr. Maturin. His other friends are
so grateful to you.'
`I sew his ears on from time to time, sure'
