Hi Steve and Clive,

(further to my earlier post to Steve's post)

Don't you have to be online 24/7 to "(reject spam at SMTP time)"?
I see that you Clive have an address which shows you have your own
domain whereas Steve has a yahoo account.

I use pon + fetchmail to get my mail from a pop3 server at my isp every
couple of days, isn't it to late to reject then?

Am I misunderstanding something? I would like to (reject spam at SMTP
time) also. I will read the doc's you posted links to Clive.

Reproduction if desired may be handled locally. -- rfc3
