to be honest, I do not want, but in practice when I need to land some
mail domain with whole it's users at my MTA, I need to decide what
to do with widely used mailboxes like admin, info, abuse etc

I meant is difference in more "other" protocols like smtp/pop3/imap4 -
xmpp - rdp - ftp - ssh - whatever else

wow, great!  since the number of the services I provide is limited, it is
