They're moderated ML, so I don't do anything  with the mails. When you 
reject anything then they got a reply and know it's a valid address.

I use the spam feature of Thunderbird to train the internal spam filter. 
Today nearly all got into my spam folder. Here I just need to look for 
false positives, otherwise delete finally. That's it.

After a while the mails get also deleted automatically in the ML system 
without any reply back to the sender.
