nice words, but crap.  due to needs to spool mail for sites in
countries with very poor connectivity, mail spool time here is
quite long.  if verizon and others seem unable to decide in weeks,
why should i pay the penalty?

but, i guess the problem is easily solved with exim config.  i have
set it so that if it can not deliver to verizon in say one hour, it
dumps the mail.        *           F,1h,5m

life is simple, except for verizon users i guess.
