For distributed mailing systems, the configuration settings can tell
mailing systems where to consolidate the outgoing "origination

verification by a Receiving system, any point of connection (even if
not the physical outgoing system that sent the email) will be able to
query the central data repository for email validation. This data
repository can live within the email system itself or be outsourced to
a data management provider (e.g. MessageLevel.com).
This would seem to have serious scalability concerns for large
providers, as well as for anyone with a decentralized infrastructure.
