This idea is neither new nor revolutionary. The Symantec SMS 8160 does this now and the technology comes from their acquisition of TurnTide, which was doing this from the beginning of 2004. Prior to that it, was called SpamSquelcher which launched in late 2002.

    You're right that Turntide does something fairly similar, but there's a big difference with the turntide and that's the amount of information you get back from it. When connections time out from an MTA based solution you not only know about it, you know at what stage they timed out, and what stage they timed out at.

    This probably seems really unimportant to most people, but to anyone working on these kinds of solutions it is fairly vital information.
