 email. If you use other methods to send mail, for example by directly
 running sendmail or talking to an SMTP server, you'll have to add
 interception support yourself.
+Be aware that this setting can mask certain programming errors. For
+example, trying to send an email without a To address normally results
+in an error. But with email interception, a valid To address is actually
+used, so no error results. Before switching off interception, the only
+way to know you have a problem is by checking the X-Intercepted-To:
+header and noticing it's empty, or by looking at the catalog error log
+and seeing that an empty To: header was intercepted.
