By "nonblocking mode," do you mean "non-rejecting"?

At what value should dccm decide that a message is "bulk"?

Three copies of a message sent to a vanity domain might well be "bulk,"
but 30 copies sent to a large ISP might not be.
Thus the third value for `dccm -t` defines the local notion of "bulk."

I'll try to improve the dccm man page on this subject.
