similar question: is is possible to falsely reject the incoming
(junk-)mail? that is, the receiving MTA sends back some sort of
rejection --- which presumably causes the sending MTA to never
again try to deliver that particular e-mail --- whilst really
saving the (suspected junk-)mail in a side mbox?
