of my spam filtering, or NONE of my spam filtering. Nothing in between. I
explain to them that the problem is when sending servers are non-compliant
with the rules. I inform the sending server administrators that we are
blocking their mail. The admins don't really give a shit.
But when my customers start bothering the other admins users, and those
users start buggering the non-compliant admin, things seem to get done.
