One more:

- Reject the spam in the SMTP conversation, but deliver it to the quarantine
as well (fakereject). This may be an option in the range between "almost
certainly spam" (i.e. really reject) and "maybe spam" (mark and deliver or
quarantine). But it may also be completely useless as you get more junk in
the quarantine while the sender is confused (either the rejection message
says the mail was quarantine - will it be read or not, and when? - or it
doesn't mention it - then the sender is surprised when a reply arrives while
he is trying to resubmit the message.
