I came across this rather nonsensical message from one of Hotmail’s MX servers:
$ telnet mx1.hotmail.com 25 Trying 18.104.22.168... Connected to mx1.hotmail.com. Escape character is '^]'. 220 bay0-mc9-f11.bay0.hotmail.com Sending unsolicited commercial or bulk e-mail to Microsoft's computer network is prohibited.

(newlines added to improve readability) No wonder there is so much spam on the internet. If you violate Microsoft’s antispam policy, that will result in the use of equipment located in California and other states. Oh dear. They are going to use equipment! In California! And in other states! The spammers must be really frightened now.
