Well, you're right. I didn't express myself clearly. However, I have a
heavily modified vbounce2.cf in the /etc/spamassassin/ folder, which
assigns a default score of 7 so many bounce messages, since we don't
accept foreign bounces here.

Anyway, thanks for pointing out the real aim of VBounce. I lost it
completely, and now you've got me thinking if what I'm doing is wrong.
