As someone you I should thank pointed out on private, I used
inappropriate language in the sentence above; this is because I faulty
translated from my own language where, like in French, one of the
synonyms is considered OK.

Please accept my apologies for this.

In _my_ experience their default is, more or less: everyone outside our
network is suspect, anyone outside the half on Germany we like should
be blocked. I don't think this attitude is the right one, but, of
course, it's everyone right to accept mail or not; one still expects
mails to postmaster and other RFC addresses to be answered.

To make it short, I have long renounced to have anything to do with
them, either for myself or my customers.

Thank you, I will take the liberty to point anyone questioning about
GMX to this email.

Personally I relay on mail/dspam for spam filtering. It serve me and my
clients very well, with something like Overall Accuracy: 99.40%
