While my initial statement may have been overly vague, my suggestion was
that SA itself might be approached by, say, Amazon,  Orbitz, etc.,
should it turn out that SA blocks their mail by default.  I don't know
what the actual situation is.  I do know that in a recent conversation
with Dan Quinlan (after, ahem, pwhysall had picked a fight with him on
#debian), he mumbled something about not being able to filter TMDA
challenge headers for fear of raising hell from TMDA.

Not that I care or anything ;-)


My suggestion in this case:  file a wishlist bug for a user note about
the whitelisted domains to appear during install. 

Peace.
