OK. I can accept that. Just curious: Aside from spam software,
the prime offenders?
It's mostly spam software. This turned out to be an excellent spam
I found that bugtraq mailing list dropped me because of the 2045
checking. Presumably one of the thousands of people who post to the list
uses a bad mailer, so I bounced it, so the list probed me to check, and
apparently the probe failed. I don't know why it would; I thought they were
running a straightforward ezmlm setup.
I'm currently running courier with 2045 checking commented out, as is
described somewhere in the documentation. I wouldn't mind having that be an
obscure config file option somewhere instead of requiring a special compile.
I understand the reasoning behind anal checking, but I also need to receive
mail from lists that have bad software posting to them.
