Re: [PLUG] WAS: spamassassin help: create a rule to score by sender TLD Now: Email support

and your forward is now: has address
( is still - domain name pointer

so, email will still bounce - you would know that if you did not
re-write/obtuse/change email bounces.

But not to worry. As I said: does the exact same thing.

If you block a Google server from dropping 100 000 emails on you, with
valid emails in between, bounces back to their user that You
have a technical read error

so, re-writing and lying to end users is not something just done by
people using a domain with different forward and reverse IP numbers
but also by those that transmit over 50% of the entire planets email.
