About two weeks ago I got a complaint from one of our overseas offices
saying they can't send mail to us. I looked at the log files; the
smtpserver was rejecting their mail as spam for three days. By the
time I got the complaint, any trace of problems had already disappeared.

Perhaps the smtpserver should log the real reason (on a # line) in the
log file so that if we hit this kind of thing again at least we know
what was going on?
