Mail gateways such as Barracuda do not permit <> senders so verification of any
legitimate mail from such a gateway will always fail. However not doing sender
verification is not an option becuase it cuts down on an awful lot of spam.

I would much rather do verification in the mail acl i.e. early on, rather than
doing unnecessary processing i.e. rcpt acl and then data acl.
