Subject: Re: Unencumbered Checking
There are many instances were the check will be done after the SMTP
transaction. SpamAssassin is an obvious example.
Plus, the MUA checking is what makes this valuable against phishing.
If the email is rejected before being written to users mail spool files, it
still doesn't get to the
MUA. But rejecting at the MTA also saves bandwidth etc.
So why isn't checking at the MTA valuable against phishing?
