Yeah, and "research-project" sounds way too generic and obvious. :p

Erm.. they probably don't even read the mails they get. Just parse them automatically for addresses.

If you email back you're more likely to get more spam because they know they found an email then, then sell your email address to other spammy people, thus you get more. I would just delete it lol

For what reason?

1) you'd be giving your email (depending on the program) to them, which is what the entire thread was talking about. (you'd also be giving them your IP)
2) One computer with a few text emails aren't gonnna dent their servers, and if you were planning to send HTML ones, it'd take too long

Have fun if you wanna do it anyway.

Edited for Guido :p

Not to mention mail bombing is something 9 year olds who were just introduced to the internet do.
The previous sentence is false. The following sentence is true.

Not necessarily... I'm pretty sure you'd not use your real e-mail when using a mail bomber :P

Many text mails are more likely to hang up a server a bit more than less, bigger e-mails. That's my uneducated guess, at least. If anything, at least, their mail crawler will take longer to finish the process. Ahh, revenge! :gay: :gfdrin:

Ya but that was from a different mail account (A) :P
I knew he would forward it to u :P and that was the only one i think that i sent to him ... other joke mails i talk to ppl about on msn so no mails :P
And thats the reason why i delete previous Cc's and bcc's be4 sending the mail to others hence if it goes into the hands of a spam bot eventually then other ppl wont suffer :rolleyes:

you could quickly make a script that would create loads of fake e-mail addresses, and then put it all into an e-mail and send it to them.
