I begin by assuming the answer to the following is "no." However, just in case, here is my question: A number of spammers seem to be using my email address as their "reply-to" return address on the spams they are sending out. Unfortunately, this is all-too-easy to do. Note, they are not using my account, but just entering my address in the from and reply-to lines (something even I know how to do) on an email sent from one of their accounts. My question is: Is there anyway to keep a third party from using your email address in this way?
Fortunately, a couple of layers of filtering (google, then a bayesian
filter) seem to have at least halted the growth of spam in my box and
perhaps even rolled it back a little. By the way, I still stand by my solution to spam, which is to charge 0.1 cents per email. Normal eavy users who might send 30-100 emails a day would pay 3-10 cents a day, ie nothing. Spammers who send 10 million emails would be charged $10,000 for each mass mailing.
