We're not going to be using the data as a honey pot, so it won't
affect anyone's reputation. This is really just for "real-world" load
testing and evaluation of new techniques.
Our customers get lots of mail, but we have to be -- how shall I say
-- careful with it!

I agree whole-heartedly. What is particularly missing IMHO is a
spoofed-BGP-route blacklist. Anyone making any progress on that sort
