I must have missed him. I was using Spam Assassin modified to run an email confirmation request for each piece of spam. This 'dude' has posted a couple of times, but they all get tossed into the trash list. I don't do anything with it.

It works really well:
If you look "spammy" I put you on hold.
If you are on hold, I send you a confirmation request.

If I don't get a response, or do get a bounce then I blacklist you for a period that is configurable by me.

If I do get a response, I push that into SpamAssassin's whitelist and keep you on file for a guaranteed "OK" mail for a period of time similar to the blacklist.

It requires procmail and doesn't really care what the SMTP server is.

I think irc isn't going to work though---we're running out of topic space!
