To actually get any replys, I *expect* you to send emails with a valid
sender address. So please, go, correctly configure your email system to
tar-pit the senders of SPAM and/or get a properly configured spam filter
into your local delivery.

...and what did you actually mean with "corrupt the address"?  Either it
works, or it doesn't. Those dirty tricks (adding __REMOVE_THIS__
somewhere or "user -at- some dot domain dot uk" don't work anymore, so
that's pointless. Putting a correctly incorrect address in place or
removing it alltogether only makes it harder to reply to you in a year
or two. Some people actually *read* archives to educate themselves and
sometimes like to ask those that initially posted...
