Currently not supported.

Never the above two. These should be deleted, because a spammer could 
try to relay through your machine with:

spammer.ip.addr.here IN PTR localhost.localdomain.

OK. The original intent for milter-link-body: was to whitelist the

explicit rejection of a URI domain does not reject the message 
containing the URI. I'll see about fixing it.
