According to the RFCs, one MUST NOT bounce mail sent to postmaster.
One ought to read the rfc-ignorant.org site I mentioned.

Oddly enough, even spammers tend not to spam <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>, perhaps if only because the postmaster tends to be willing and able to respond to spam effectively. :-/

Ack! I don't have a problem with refusing mail from *.dsl.verizon.net, or with *.client.comcast.net, or any other dialup/broadband range, but bouncing authenticated mail relayed via Verizon's mailservers is probably excessive.
