In the best of all possible worlds, this would all be not only
reasonable, it would be the clearly right thing to do. In the world we
inhabit, which is but a pale shadow of that utopia, I've seen email
from real companies that I wanted to receive get caught by some of
these. invalid_hostname and/or unknown_sender_domain might have been
