That seems good to me (and Reco agrees). Problem: my envelope From
does not match my subscribed address, and is not intended to.

I am still wondering what use it is to "check for the existence of
that LDOSUBSCRIBER value of X-Spam-Status e-mail header *before*
replying to e-mail". How does it affect the actions one takes? Or
is it just another facet of cargo cult?
