Type of Service marking

vila
Hi guys!


Can postfix mark packets corresponding to a certain email with a Type  
of Service (DiffServ) value?

For example, all packets (or at least the ones that initiates the smtp  
connection to the receiving mta) corresponding to mail directed to  
[hidden email] will have a TOS value of 0x08...

regards,
evelio

If it solves more problems than it creates, then you're welcome to
post a patch.

What would be the benefits of TOS, what would be the opportunities
for abuse, and how would one prevent such abuse?
