A bad address in the GetTor world is an address that doesn't like large attachments. Maybe there's other reasons to regard an address as bad. However, if someone writes GetTor an email from such an address, it should respond with something like `Please send your mail again from a better address, for instance from'.

Should we do this even if the requesting email doesn't do dkim (so we're not sure if it's actually *from* that address)?

Should we remember if we've answered a given address lately, so we don't repeatedly spam people, and so we avoid loops?

I see that many of these issues are already discussed at

So then my question becomes: what's the rationale for changing things?
(I don't mean to suggest that the current situation is ideal. Just that if we provide explanation for the change, we could better understand where we want to end up.)

What's the status here? Did we change something and not document it here? Or are we still silent when somebody sends us mail from a domain that can't handle gettor-sized responses?
