Now that we have established a "trust chain" an verify the sending user we
have an easy way (shuffling through mail logs is by no means easy in my
books) for support people to address SPAM complaints.

Even better, due to the verified sender we can now send bounce messages
and notifications to originator. Sure, it'll result in "I never send
this..." type support calls but support can now say "Sure, your computer
did behind your back...".
