Donotcall.gov has no MX records. No reverse DNS on any of their outbound
mail boxes. And they obviously are not processing bounces/complaints/etc.
since nothing on that netblock has port 25 open.

And you can bet that this "project" cost at least six figures, maybe
seven.  As a taxpayer, I was quite disappointed to see IIS and Microsoft
SMTPSVC gluing this pile together.  When I went in and registered last
night, I was surprised to see that it was so simple.  There seemed to be
no protection against a bot coming in and mailbombing someone to death.
What a sad state this business is in.

They don't quite have all the bugs out.  I gave them three phone numbers,
but they only sent two confirmations.
