No, no, no.
As several others mentionned, what if everyone did that?
1) There is a test list
2) You can always Email postmaster at svlug.org, it usually the place to
ask when you have mail issues and it would have doubled as a test in this
BTW, the exim config on svlug.org refuses Emails which fail SMTP callback
(it makes sure the header and envelope froms are valid by attempting a the
beginning of a delivery back to the MXes for the domains linked to those
addresses (they can either be different or identical))
Accepting mail that can't be bounced back to (envelope sender invalid) is
just a bad idea. The target mail server ends up with the mail it can't
bounce if there are any problems.
People who can't/won't receive bounces to the mails they send have no
business sending Email.
