How easy is it to build a script that parses that though? Pretty easy - I agree it seems to work at the moment, but I don't think it will last long.
What I would like to see is an e-mail system that works like this (let's say I have the address email@example.com):-
1. Joe Schmuck sends an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
2. My e-mail client receives it into a holding area pending validation and sends an auto reply from "email@example.com" (different to main addy so people I know can then always just block those from their inbox).
3. If the firstname.lastname@example.org mail gets returned, the original mail never gets into my inbox.
4. If there's no return response within, say 10 minutes, it pops up in my inbox.
Does a system like that exist? Any thoughts?
The other thing I would like is some form of auto-spammer software for those Nigerian "URGENT: WIDOW NEEDS HELP GETTING $560,000,000 OUT OF ACCOUNT" type e-mails.
They tend to use Yahoo! etc mailboxes - I would love to spam them up to their full 3mb limit.
