Tips on using forged addresses to avoid SPAM

>From: “Uni” <Nospamforme@unicycling.org>

Please do not use a forged address where the domain actually exists
without the permission of the domain owner.

I usally use 123@notmyemail.com

I really hope that no one has that address or they probably have tons of spam.

Surprisingly, notmyemail.com is a valid domain, but there aren’t any
hosts associated with it. (No mapping from domain to IP exists.)

Well, until a mapping from the domain to a valid IP exists, no one is
getting SPAM for 123@notmyemail.com yet.

BTW, if a mail server for notmyemail.com existed and user 123 didn’t,
notmyemail.com would have to reject every incoming e-mail for user 123,
since it doesn’t exist. Domain owners don’t like any extra work like
this, so please don’t think that the following e-mail address form is OK
to use:

invalid_username@valid.domain

Unless you have permission from the owner of valid.domain.
