It's technically incorrect. It's not an incompatibility problem. A
sender should to be able to differentiate between a temporary
rejection due to an error and one due to the receiver's policy
decision. If you are doing log analysis, you can categorize the
different conditions by reply code and take whatever action may be necessary.
I once came across a site in the Far East that was temporary
rejecting a message. As I didn't understand the text (language), I
had to rely on the reply code to deduce whether they were explicitly
rejecting messages from the sending host.
