Just like you can reject on 'invalid user' or a RBL/RHSBL, you can reject
on the content of a message. Point is, you have to do it before you have
accepted the message for delivery. This has been possible with Sendmail
for quite a while (via the Milter interface) and Postfix now also allows
you to do this with the before-queue content filtering since version 2.1
(see smtpd_proxy_filter).
