ACL verb "reject" - An error in the Specification?
Am I going mad?

Section 43.36 *Detailed information from merged DNS lists*
<https://www.exim.org/exim-html-current/doc/html/spec_html/ch-access_control_lists.html#SECTmordetinf>
in
the Specification has two examples, such as:

reject message = \
rejected because $sender_host_address is blacklisted \
at $dnslist_domain\n$dnslist_text
dnslists = \
sbl.spamhaus.org,sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org=127.0.0.2 : \
dul.dnsbl.sorbs.net,dnsbl.sorbs.net=127.0.0.10

But section 43.18 *ACL verbs*
<https://www.exim.org/exim-html-current/doc/html/spec_html/ch-access_control_lists.html#SECID200>
doesn't
list "reject" as a valid verb.

An error in the Specification text?
Or are my tired eyes missing something glaringly obvious?

Cheers,
Mike B-)

It is there even twice, as
reject message =
and some lines later as
reject dnslists =

I'll fix it, in case it proves to be wrong.
(Until now I do not know of an ACL verb „reject“)
