Right... badly worded, but my last paragraph is still the meaning I 
intended to convey...

Maybe better:

No one has a 'Right' to talk to anyone else's mail server.

If they aren't playing well, document it: let anyone who uses your 
services know that if THEY choose to use a problematic service, that is 
their choice and their risk (of lost messages).
