So is dropping all incoming mail.

Virtually ANYTHING reduces the number of worm mails spread by clients
like Outlook, if it involves rejecting mail. That's inevitable, given
that Outlook worms are one of the most common forms of mail on the
internet. It's not a particularly interesting observation to make.

Blacklisting based on dial-up or dynamic status is nothing more than
an effort to turn the internet into an oligarchy, where only the rich
and powerful can control mail. It's a power grab. That's all it does
and all it's intended to do.
