please don't re-spam me

[ #36328 ]
have email administrators not figured out yet that sending the From address "the mail you sent was spam" mails just doubles the amount of spam traffic? everyone knows the From address probably didn't originate the mail, right? have we learned nothing over the past, what, 9 years?

  • If people realized this, they wouldn't send responses to potential viruses, and we'd never have to worry about challenge/response systems.

    • I think this is partly down to the fact that the default configurations of many MTAs is to bounce unreachable addresses and the like. At the point they are being bounced the mail itself hasn't been interrogated to decided whether it was malware. However, those that interrogate the mail and then still send the bounce back need a few things explaining to them.

  • You’d think people would cotton on to this someday.
