An idea for stopping sex junk mail that gets thru filters

Postby Patrick Sutton » Sat Jun 10, 2006 3:35 am

Is it possible to send an auto- response to a junk email that makes it appear that my email address is invalid? A lot of the junk mail I get has misspelled words like p*nis en&largement etc and seem to come from various email id's and addressess, so I am having a tough time filtering them. I know from a past experience that if an email address doesn't work for even 2 weeks almost all of my junk email has stopped arriving at that address once it becomes active or valid again.

Thanks -

Patrick

It's possible, but I don't think it would do any good.
Most return email addresses from those junk senders are spoofed, so instead you'll spam someone with your bounce. :?

Spam comes and goes, because one day you're submerged with it and the next you don't get any.

FWIW Best to just delete those spam messages. :)

Ah ha - I figured there had to be a reason it wasn't being done!

Thanks again, Eric - once again you have been a great help!

Hi Patrick, I agree with Eric on this one; spammers never send out messages under their own name.
