Interesting, but isn't this prone to generating backscatter?

A suggestion about this behavior, that has been in my mind for a while now:

is it possible to define a sort of "fallback policy" in case of
multi-recipient messages exceeding the score with one or more recipients

Like "if one of the recipients is whitelisted then TAG the mail (instead
of rejecting it) and deliver it to all recipients"?

This could also be a way to manage situations where some users want you
to reject spam while others want you to tag...

Paranoia is a disease unto itself. And may I add: the person standing
next to you may not be who they appear to be, so take precaution.
