I'm told this won't work because lots of developers forge mail to
make it seem like they're sending from @netbsd.org but through their
own mail servers.
I confess I do this too but would be willing to give up this relatively
minor luxury if it were to decrease the amount of spam flying around.
However, not all developers feel this way.
