Anyway, it boggles my mind that any dev wouldn't use something like "donotreply@" the domain they actually own, and just bit bucket them when they come back, with a bounce giving customer contact info.
On what basis? Particularly, which of the donotreply.com e-mail postings do you think is illegal, and why?
vsync, take the example of an automated email generated by a server on user registration. I guess I'm a scumbag for including
This email is automated. Please do not reply to it.
And then using donotreply@ the domain it is being sent from? If someone does reply despite the warnings, they get a bounce that says
Hi, this mailbox is not monitored--it's where our server sends registration emails from. To get in touch, please visit www.example.tld/contact/ or call 8xx-555-1212 from 9-6 Pacific time. You may wish to look through our FAQ at www.example.tld/faq/ to see if your question has already been answered. Thanks!
I'm anxious to hear what the better way of doing this is.
