TCP rate-limiting on outbound traffic to *:25 would also be extremely
effective, particularly on unclassified customer traffic, and without the

interfere with low-volume legitimate mail, but it really cramps spam.

It interferes heavily with transmission of large files via email, though,
and this *IS* a valid use of service.

The transmission of large files is not a valid use of email.
