 If I were to check rejected e-mails once a week I'd be looking at a list of a
cpl of 100 (actually, it might be down to less than a 100 per week now, don't
know if the SPAMmers are taking a break or if a cpl of days of EXITCODE=67 got
me removed from some very active network of SPAMmers).

 It is a working idea though, and one I might fall back on if needed.

Seems a computer engineer, a systems analyst, and a programmer were
driving down a mountain when the brakes gave out.  They screamed down the
mountain, gaining speed, but finally managed to grind to a halt, more by
luck than anything else, just inches from a thousand foot drop to jagged
rocks.  They all got out of the car:
        The computer engineer said, "I think I can fix it."
        The systems analyst said, "No, no, I think we should take it
into town and have a specialist look at it."
        The programmer said, "OK, but first I think we should get back
in and see if it does it again."
