I’m reallyÂ strugglingÂ with sorting out email recently. I think I have a strategy now, just need someone to build a plugin, or tell me it exists already. Here’s what it should do:
Mail client plugin that is constantly building whitelist and blacklist of senders by automatically replying to every new sender with a very kind note asking her to just reply so that we verify she’s human. this happens just once and then the rest of the communication is normal forever.
… Preferably for Google Apps. 😉
