Incorrect size calculations on bogus messages

Hi Ken,

> I wonder if we should just reject these messages in lmtpd.

if your mailer daemon has already accepted the mail but lmtp rejects it, you 
have to create a bounce message. When the message is spam you'll usually get a 
faked sender address and have problems delivering the bounce. I've been 
creating all kinds of solutions to get rid of such bounces.

So please don't add another case where lmtp rejects a message without at the 
same time creating a filter for the mailer daemon which uses exactly the same 
criteria for rejection. The filter could be created for the milter interface 
and thus work for sendmail and postfix.

Kind regards,
