Notes about valid AOL account names, courtesy of Ron Newman:
AOL's current abuse auto-reply contains useful information about how to recognize at least some forged AOL addresses: ------------- Valid AOL address can not: -be shorter than 3 or longer than 10 characters -begin with numerals -contain periods, underscores, dashes or other punctuation characters Valid AOL mail will have a short, verifiable Received path directly from a resolvable host within AOL.COM to your mail host. ------------ I think that translates into this procmail rule: :0: * ^(From|Reply-To): (.|..|...........+|[0-9].+|.*[^a-zA-Z0-9]+.*)@aol.(com|net) $SPAM Anyone want to improve on this?
