Yeah, and AOL has even turned off verification of RCPT-TO. It really
sucks, because it means I get a separate error report from AOL. Most
other sites report the error at once, and my local sendmail can then
give me one short, precise (well, sort of) report per message sent to
my mailing list.
(Hopefully Brad Knowles listens :-)
