> When spam is rejected, who receives the reject?
Rejecting is done instead of accepting for delivery. You are rejecting
the transaction from whatever IP is trying to transmit it to you. In
one way you could say that there is no 'reject' in the form of a
newmail -- there is only the transaction code exchange between your
receiving server and the sending server whose mail was rejected.
Properly transmitted mail from a server which is serving a user which is
rejected causes that server which attempted to send but was rejected to
notify the sending user that the delivery failed.
An attempt to improperly transmit mail from something like an abused
proxy will just 'disappear' because it isn't being handled in a
legitimate smtp fashion.

These seem like pretty crazy [AKA 'dumb'] questions to be asking here!
If you don't know what you are talking about and doing, then you
shouldn't be doing it. If you are trying to educate someone else about
how to do something, it isn't going to work like this.
Shall we create an entire tutorial book on server handling here and then
you hand it to someone else? No good.

That sounds totally whacky to me. Are you telling the truth? I don't

Well, I can construct something out of that by digging around.
This is all about darbysdesign which has its nameservice from robust.net
which is a very small block under ev1. Its mx is 220.127.116.11 whose
rDNS is actually dar.luxline.com. Which luxline is also the notify for
robust.net and which luxline and robust and gtct all have the same
I don't really know what the 18.104.22.168 rDNS
server1.darsbydesign.com has to do with anything, except that there is
a pop and smtp server there which isn't listed as an MX for
darbysdesign, but it is a MailEnable server.
darbysdesign also doesn't have an SPF.
