This memo defines the SIEVE mail filtering language [SIEVE]
   "reject" and "refuse" extensions.
   A Joe-job is a spam run forged to appear as though it came from an
   innocent party, who is then generally flooded by the bounces, MDNs
   and messages with complaints.  With the Sieve "reject" action, MDNs
   contribute to the flood of Joe-job spam to victims of Joe-jobs;
   SMTP level refusals usually don't.  With "refuse", Sieve gains the
   ability to simply not accept an email during the SMTP transaction
   (instead of accepting it and then sending an MDN [MDN] back to the
   alleged sender using "reject").

NOTE:   The mail server at can return the document in
        MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
        feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
        command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
        a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
        exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
        "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
        up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
        how to manipulate these messages.
