Yes, you really want your mail server to tell your clients that they're
not going to get mail, and why.  Rather than the people trying to email
them being the only ones knowing the mail isn't getting through.  You'll
end up with some pissed off clients vying for your blood, as you've
sabotaged their communications.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
