Hi, all.

Writing to find out whether I'm at risk of getting silently
dropped from the list.

SSC's backup mx, ns2.ssc.com, has installed email body checks from 


and configured the mailer there to respond:

550 Error: SecuritySage SPAM-ID: b20030701-296001 Your email had 
spam-like body contents. To report this mess age as non-spam, 
please follow the instructions available at 

My question for the list is whether this comes under the heading
of "broken challenge-response systems" as discussed at


The system challenges only emails it doesn't like.  As noted 
in previous CR threads, no doubt flooding innocent third parties 
with mysterious challenges in the process.
