This draft is a work item of the Sieve Mail Filtering Language Working Group of the IETF.
Title : Sieve Email Filtering: Reject Extension
Author(s) : M. Elvey, et al.
Filename : draft-ietf-sieve-refuse-reject-05.txt
Pages : 0

This memo updates the definition of the Sieve mail filtering language
(RFC draft-ietf-sieve-3028bis-XX.txt) "reject" extension, originally
defined in RFC 3028.
A "Joe-job" is a spam run forged to appear as though it came from an
innocent party, who is then generally flooded by automated bounces,
Message Disposition Notifications (MDNs), and personal messages with
complaints. The original Sieve "reject" action defined in RFC 3028
required use of MDNs for rejecting messages, thus contributing to the
flood of Joe-job spam to victims of Joe-jobs.
This memo updates the definition of the "reject" action to allow
messages to be refused during the SMTP transaction, and defines the
"ereject" action to require messages to be refused during the SMTP
The "ereject" action is intended to replace the "reject" action

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
