Subject RE: Why am I getting those emails? (was: FW: MODERATE for lucene-net-user@incubator.apache.org)
Date Mon, 24 Apr 2006 03:56:47 GMT
After reading http://www.apache.org/dev/committers.html#mail-moderate I will
now ignore spam emails.

This said, I disagree with you on if I send a reject email it will tell the
spammer that it's a valid address.  The fact that the spammer's original
email wasn't rejected by the mail server is an indication to the spammer
that the email address is valid.  No?

Actually, you generally just want to ignore spam.  After a few days ezmlm
will just remove it from the pending queue.  Rejecting it sends a reply,
which tells the spammer that it's a valid address.
