Subject Suggestions/Recommendations "Anti-Spam"
Date Tue, 23 Apr 2002 13:31:16 GMT

I am working on a project to develop a platform-independent anti-spam 
solution. I would like to implement an additional feature for James and use 
it as a mail proxy on localhost.

The basic idea is:

All messages from senders that are unknown will be automatically returned to 
the senders address with a unique ID and the message: "please send this 
message again to the same address".
If this message arrives us, the senders address is permanently allowed.
(i.e. added to "allowed senders")

This will block all of those non replyable mail spammers. Those, who have the 
ability to respond (and even do so with the unique ID) can be blocked easily 
by changing the format of the message.

What is the best way to contribute this idea into James ? Where to start ?
