Discussion is most welcome. That's a major reason why I posted it.
With chkuser, is it possible to pull a joe-job? The spammer connects
directly to my SMTP server, but I reject it at the SMTP level instead
of generating a bounce that I then try to deliver to the actual target
(the forged sender of the message).
Good question. Anyone know off the top of their head how this works. I
guess I should, as I use chkuser too. I'm thinking either delete or
bounce should act the same and reject non-existent users. I know I
can't forward mail to a catchall account and still reject non-existent
users. This topic should probably be added to the file since it does
affect how deliveries work on the server.
