amanuensis Posted February 9, 2007 Share Posted February 9, 2007 Some spam arrives with the following in the To: line abcde <abcde[at]spamxxx.con> Where clearly the "abcde" gives away the user's name or prefix. Sometimes that prefix (or userid) is a random name; but when it's a user's actual ID, it is almost equivalent of not munging the address, since the spammer probably knows it's a spamcop address from other data. Would it be too much to have the parser for the munging also remove the prefix before the <....> ? At least in the case where that ID is identical to the user's email address prefix? Just asking.
