Upgrade to 6.3.4

Ideally I want mail to non-existant users to bounce (they're generally
spam). Can anyone offer any suggestions?

Spam messages almost never have a legit return address.  All you'll
end up doing is annoying some poor innocent sod, and possibly becoming
a spam source yourself.  Better to drop them on the floor.

Otherwise, once you've upgraded to 6.3.4 please submit the output of
"fetchmail -v -v -v" showing the problem.

                Please keep list traffic on the list.
