Dccm rejects mail only if you set the rejection thresholds low enough,
such as with DCCM_REJECT_AT=XX in /var/dcc/conf.
By default only the Received, Body, and Fuz1 checksums are used to
reject mail when you set DCCM_REJECT_AT.  The other checksums are
not reliable indications of "bulkness."
Subject checksums matter only if you set DCCM_CKSUMS or DCCM_XTRA_CKSUMS
in /var/dcc/dcc_conf or otherwise use "-t subject,X,Y".

I'm considering removing the Subject checksum when I add support
for the new Fuz2 checksum realsoonow.  (but I've been saying that
for more than a month)
