Hmm, thats true... But in this case it doesn't accept it for delivery, and
the sender doesn't get to know that either.
I realized that in most cases it's not a problem, since mostly MailHost is
used to send mailforms to a specific set of recipients, and then you don't
want to tell the website visitor that one address didn't work, as long as
another one did.

So maybe it's not much of a problem. I still don't like it though, which is
why I'd like the option of selecting the behaviour. :-)
