comment Privoxy rule to block Facebook spying
+1 for the update to the regex. I've incorporated that into the question for future reference.

comment How to configure Apple Power Mac to boot headless (without keyboard or monitor)?
Thanks. I wasn't looking for making changes to the hardware (so can't evaluate whether they work in this case) but I appreciate the suggestions.

comment Please recommend a good mail server that compacts storage by use of hashing or other means?
An MTA is responsible for sending messages, which implies you're asking only about storage of messages queued to be sent out. Is that the case? If not, you might instead be talking about mailbox storage; please change the question if so.

As mentioned in Sven's answer, there appears to be no way to change this short of modifying the hardware.

Thanks. Currently, senders succeed in getting a message delivered, but then there's no way to reply back. By blocking the messages at SMTP time, with an explanatory message, the sender will at least know that the problem is at their mail transport provider's end. That will be an improvement over the current situation.

I can only refer you back to the part where I've said the reject message explicitly says the reason is “your host is an ADSL connection” (or various other phrasings). The PTR record for the host is correct. If they're rejecting based on a PTR record that is correct but they don't like, then that's what I'm trying to address in the question.

One of us is very confused. I answered your questions about rDNS. Do you think rDNS uses something other than PTR records?

Where have you got the impression that the DNS entries are incorrect? They're not; PTR and A records are present and correct. Also, the recipients have made plain that their reason for rejection is not poorly-configured DNS settings, but rather that ADSL is the criterion on which they're rejecting.

That is one of the black lists included in the aggregate checks suggested in JohnnyD's answer. The address is not currently listed at that service.
