You might as well power off your computer, and revert to surface mail, in
line with Jeffrey comment.

You will be rejecting a lot of legitimate servers, bussiness and private,
and users like me. One of the mail accounts I use doesn't have reverse
dns, simply because the domain was not bought trough the ISP, and the ISP
refuses to adjust reverse mapping (probably till you pay them extra, and
maybe even if you do).
