OT: Error Code for Spam-Warnings

Discussion in 'Python' started by Thomas =?ISO-8859-15?Q?G=FCttler?=, Aug 22, 2003.

  1. Hi!

    Off topic:

    Aint there a error-code RFC for emails
    which are created by spam filters?

    Something like

    X-Spam-detected: yes
    X-Spam-scanner: ....

    If there would be such a RFC, and
    virus checker implement this, mailman
    could delete these messages, without
    sending them to list.

    By the way, this would be very handy for
    "Unkown User, "Mailbox full" etc, too.

    The possibility of everyone implementing such an
    RFC in time to do anyone any good is abysmally
    low (political comment thought about, then deleted.)
    In any case, the ones that would implement it are the
    same ones that have figured out that most of this stuff
    is from forged addresses, and have already quit sending
    responses.

    It isn't particularly hard to drive the number of thesse
    down to the curiosity level. Just time consuming and
    irritating. The number of mail robots out there that
    haven't gotten clueful about forged reply addresses yet
    isn't that large, they're just in widespread use.
