        tcpdump one's incoming connection for ICMP, and watch

        Notice code 13 coming back multiple times in response to SMTP 
connection attempts

        Notice E-mail in queue to destination marked with "connection timed out"

        See ICMP_UNREACH_ADMIN_PROHIBIT in /usr/src/sys/netinet/ip_icmp.h
        Grep for it; find one reference in udp_userreq.c

        Look in /usr/src/sys/netinet/ip_icmp.c and see the case
        statement not handle that code; it defaults to "badcode" goto.

        Check netstat -s and find hundreds of "bad code" statistics, and wonder
        how many of those are (valid) code 13 versus something else.
