This makes my day! Great move, FreeBSD.org!!

gmail is a pain in you know what for sysadmin.It accepts all mail even to addresses that do not exist lying “deliverable”, then gets back to you with non-delivery message. Making my server potential source of backscatter. My server when it has to forward always starts session with next hop, and only when that is ready to accept message tells previous hop “Ok can deliver”, then passed to next hop. You do your own math why gmail accepts undeliverable messages and what it does with information coming their way.
