> well yes if 10% ran misconfigured C-R systems that could be a problem.
George, the problems of C-R systems are inherent in their design and
pretty much unfixable: The worst of those is that, by running tmda
(other than when run with its main functions disabled), you're sending
_additional_ spam to people whose addresses were forged in incoming mail
headers. Ergo, unfortunately, you are making a bad problem worse.
Upgrading to a newer tmda isn't going to fix that fundamental problem --
and configuring tmda to not send challenges to mailing lists merely
means you're spamming slightly fewer innocent bystanders.
