The rejection message contained the info "Spam blocked
see:http://spamcop.net/bl.shtml?" an URL explaining that
that smtp server had been listed for any of several "spammish"
symptoms (now it has been delisted). That _is_ a negative judgment,
albeit temporary.

I never thought or expected that Spamcop should know this. I was
referring to your MDA, meaning that it should be configured to "ask"
to spamcop only for messages which aren't replies to something/someone
you already knew. Sorry if I didn't make myself clear.

No big deal, however.

People often find it easier to be a result of the past than a cause of
the future.
