An aside that does not need discussion, as far as I can tell.....
Some email make a big deal out the difference between a "rejection"
where the email was thrown on the floor and the SENDER is notified while
still connected; and a "bounce" where the mail is accepted and delivered
to an SMTP handler and the connection is dropped, then subsequently
thrown on the floor (by a spam handler, perhaps) and notice is emailed
to the header FROM address (which is often some third party innocent of
the goings on).
Does anybody still send a delayed-in-queue trash? I see one every once
in a while but it is always a genyouwine spammy bounce.
And while we are talking about Olde Stuphe--am I the only on that uses
the dash dash space EOL sentinel
to signal EOM and start of .sig?
