[Mimedefang] Can't filter after last recipient, right?

I'd like to filter messages after the client has sent the last
recipient, but before I incur the bandwidth penalty of seeing the
whole message's DATA stream.

I don't think I can do that, but wanted to confirm.

The only way to tell that someone is the last recipient is when the
client sends "DATA". At that point, it's too late: there are no milter
calls until the client has sent ".\n".

In other words, once you see "DATA", you're stuck getting (not
necessarily accepting) the whole message, right?

We're just a Bunch Of Regular Guys, a collective group that's trying
to understand and assimilate technology. We feel that resistance to
new ideas and technology is unwise and ultimately futile.
