Hello all,

There's just a very interesting news on heise.de, which relates a 
success-story of an anti-spam activist. 
The principle is the following: create invisible mailto-links on a 
website which are of the following format: datetime-ip at domain.com. If 
any spam is sent to that address, you can see from which IP address it 
was harvested. This way, even if the headers are forged, the destination 
address reveals the bad guy... Maybe an idea to implement on mozdev?
