Quota and Sievescripts

the motivation for the patch is to reduce the number of bounces, that 
would be avoided, if a spam mail is not bounced, but discarded.

A properly working mail system has no reason to prefer bouncing an email 
instead of SMTP-rejecting it and under this circumstances there is no 
need to discard an mail.

I have developed software as Milter (plugin for sendmail/postfix), that 
evaluates the Sieve scripts, uploaded by timsieved, during the SMTP 
dialog, and rejects the emails, that would otherwise be accepted by the 
MTA and bounced afterwards (by interpreting sieve reject as ereject). 
If you are interested, I can send you the software, and as there is no 
documentation for it yet, I can explain you how to install it (in fact 
the only reason for not releasing it is the lack of documentation).

Със здраве,
