> A solution (albeit laborous one) would be to every day accept only mails
> adressed to:
> yyyymmdd at yourdomain.com, where yyyymmdd is the current date (and maybe
> accept also the previous and next dates too, because of time zone
> differences).
> If you still get spam, the you can require the date to be followed by
> accepted name: you have a friend called John, and today he must use
> address 20040417john at yourdomain.com.
> Easier solution would be to require something in the subject or body of
> the email - senders email address would be good: john at hisdomain.com must
> include 'john at hisdomain.com' in the subject line. Or give your friends
> each a password that they must have in the first line of the message
> body. This is actually very good option, as it can be used even without
> your own domain name.
> How do these sound to you?
