      MX Records work for me.

      Don't set up the relay server with a "relayhost" parameter. Let it use DNS
      MX records.

      Please note that I am not the addressee of the original email and this
      reply constitutes notification that I received it.

      Ah, well that's a shame because without "disclosure" I can't tell you
      about it, and as I already said, I am not the addressee of the original
      email. So you are, in effect, forbiding me in the second part what you
      required me to do in the first part.

      I think you're still bound by the laws of your country no matter how your
      disclaimer is worded.

      Aren't you sure?

      Then don't link to them.

      ( Not a fan of disclaimers ).
