From what I understand then the mailing list checks the sender address,
to see if it is subscribed to the mailinglist. Unfortunately it's easy
for me to simply change my sender address in my mail client, and then
sending to the list.
A thing I would love to see, was that mailing-lists required some sort
of key to actually accept the mail. By key I'm thinking a PGP/GPG type
of key. Perhaps something as simple as a PGP/GPG signature, since those
are unique and requires a private key to make.
Not sure if something like that is possible, sure the users would
probably have to click an extra button before sending (to sign the
mail), but it would surely outweigh having scripts, worms, viruees etc.
mass-spam misc. mailinglists. Just an idea ;)
