Email address verification list

I would personally find it very helpfull if F9 could introduce an email verification system.
This would help to reduce the 100 - 150 rubbish & spam emails I receive every day including the spoofed emails using my f9 address.
I now cannot send emails to Switzerland as I suspect tiscali have blocked my username.

For an example of a 3rd party supplier of this - see www.bluebottle.com/index.php and www.trusteddelivery.com/.

It is unlikely to be your username (by this I assume that you mean your email address). The checking is usually done on the IP address of the server, so everyone on that server will be in the same boat.

The blocking is done by the receiving ISP against a number of 'blocklists'.

The 'from' address in a spam mail will almost certainly be faked - note that no spam invites you to reply to it, because the address will be closed down fairly quickly.
