Why not? The main problem of backscatter is badly configured MTAs. I have
seen on "this list" a few people claim that they can not configure their mail
server properly for a variety of reasons none of which are valid.
When I get backscatter to my personal email address they get reported to
spamcop. There is no reason for this crap.
