It seems like a reasonable policy, and I may have to adopt it, depite
the whining of linuxconf & sendmail users. If the RFCs purport to
require us to accept delivery from hosts that are unreachable or refuse
valid postmaster queries, then the RFCs are broken.
And rfc-ignorant.org seems like a better idea every day.

Lost cause, alas.
Rick Moen Emacs is a decent operating system,
email@example.com but it still lacks a good text editor.
