Anti-SPAM announcement from AT&T Worldnet

I think that you can comply with the ECPA by simply bouncing back the
email to the sender and only if that is not possible, then drop it in
/dev/null. Since spammers almost always have bogus reply addresses you
shouldn't run into a problem with this even if you are a relay since once
you have failed to bounce back one message, you can then add that source
address to a list that you refuse to accept email from.

If there is a way that spammers can launch a lawsuit against AT&T on the
basis of the ECPA then I am sure they will try so it's best to be
proactive here.
