We DO recipient validation. I'm talking about cutting off the client
before they hit a good one. The point I was making is that if you use
something like fail2ban that detect an IP address that is doing a
dictionary attack, and block the connection you reduce the probability
of finding a recipient that will get validated.

I know that, been doing email since '85. We are not allowed to filter
mail (except viruses) by policy. So we need other anti spam meassures,
once we accept mail we MUST deliver it (except for viruses).
