Do you just queue messages from source addresses, so that you don't generate more than one echo in a minute, or do you throw away every message from that source address which was generated less than one minute ago?

Also, how do you handle echoes of echoes? For example, if I forged e-mail as being from echo@psi.net and addressed that to echo@rohrbach.de (or whatever), would this generate an endless loop?

What if I put "echo@psi.net,echo@psi.net" as the return address? Would you send back two copies?


Just curious. Thanks!
