Re: acceptings partically a message

Excuse me, but why is this complicated?

While PRDR may be very useful, it isn't needed here.  More
important, if the message really is spam, the odds that the
spammer will request PRDR seems to me to be slight to none...
and it might not be desirable to give the spammers that much
information if they did ask for it.

So you have

C:  MAIL FROM:<spammer(_at_)example(_dot_)com>
S:  250 OK, I suppose
C:  RCPT TO:<spamtrap(_at_)example(_dot_)org>
S:  250 Ok, amuse yourself
C:  RCPT TO:<mailing-list(_at_)example(_dot_)org>
S:  550 As far as you are concerned, no such address
S:  354 Go

Is there something I'm missing?

My use case is, that I want to accept a message partially

MAIL FROM: spammer(_at_)example(_dot_)com

Wrong syntax:
MAIL FROM:<spammer(_at_)example(_dot_)com>

RCPT TO: spamtrap(_at_)example(_dot_)org

Same here.

250 OK
RCPT TO: mailing-list(_at_)example(_dot_)org

and again.

451 Try again later

That's the current way to deal with the problem if PRDR isn't
