Warnings and Disclaimers

Whilst this process will get you up and running, you need to be aware of the following: - Do this too much and you will get put on a naughty list (e.g. Spamhaus), especially if you are using a dynamic IP address from your ISP. - B2C addresses: this does not work very well against the big boys who have their own procedures and spam rules (e.g.hotmail and yahoo). - Incorrect results: some mail servers will give you incorrect results, for instance catch-all servers, which will accept all incoming email addresses, often forwarding incoming emails to a central mailbox. Yahoo addresses displays this catch-all behavior.
