RE: silently disappeared after being 'accepted for delivery'.

IMHO the recipient mail server shouldn't do this, it should refuse to accept it in the first place, which is the way I configure systems.

Not sure what the legal/contractual position is on this. My feeling is that "acceptance for delivery" constitutes delivery. Citations welcomed.
