Would it be possible to configure ezmlm to check the real
FROM address in the email header to verify that a person is
subscribed to this list.
This may allow us to use FAKE addresses when sending mail to
the list, but still allowing ezmlm to check for validity of
subscriber's real email address???
I have a new email address that I would like to use to post
messages to this list from, and drop the email account
(topz5.worldonline.co.uk) that gets all the spam messages.
Any replies from suse-security mailing list manager (real
person) would be appreciated.
