Subject: Oi! I upgraded to milter-ahead/1.1 and it no longer calls-ahead!

Removal...........: milters-request@milter.info?subject=remove
More information..: http://www.milter.info/#Support

With the addition of B/W support into milter-ahead/1.1 an unintended 
side effect has come to light, which may require the following general 
default entry in access.db:

	milter-ahead-to:                SKIP

This will in one line tell the milter to ignore the To: or plain domain 
RELAY/OK entries which trigger white-listing and thus by-pass the 
call-ahead. Alternatively use more specific tag lines like:

	milter-ahead-to:example.com	SKIP

where required.

Depending on how annoying this issue becomes, I may have to change the 
B/W behaviour to ignore by default RCPT TO: white listing to restore the 
original 1.0 behaviour and add an option to turn it on when needed.
