That they do!
And I have a *very* good idea how much gets blocked - a prime use of our FreeBSD
servers is for Exim-PostgreSQL MTA's.
I'm sure a medal or three would be very much in order - though more sleep, and
watching botnet traffic drop off the radar would probably be more welcome.
But if we could have but 'one wish' - it would be end-user communities who
understood that, yes, we DO need to block some folks they consider legitimate
correspondents - because they are violating the most basic of requirements.
