Re: Fwd: RE: kmail socket
To flood someone with email dosnt require special software. You just need 2
mail servers (or one broken one). Set up an account that forwards the email
to him, and to an account on the other server. That account forwards the mail
to him and to the other account. These nasty little mail loops can kill
servers, so many of them have mechanisms to stop it from getting out of
hand... but it still would fill his box with several thousand messages.
Note: This is not ethical, and is very easy to get caught and blacklisted by
ISP's all over. I dont recomend it. There exists special software to conceal
where this all originates from, but its not easy to find.
