Who cares?  All the end user sees is that, without having messed with the
system in any way, her email didn't get to the destination and she didn't
receive a bounce either.  I.e. it's "lost".

Whether a hacker/guru can recover the email 2 years later or not is beside
the point.

Could be, but that doesn't make the behavior correct on Mac OS X.

those bugs fixed.
