Well, it may be a *little* complex, it isn't as bad as it sounds.  As
I said, even something as simple as not including headers would go a
long way.

Not really.  In the case of an occasional boo-boo, that can be
handled with minimal effort on the human side.  As for the newbie, he
or she will be educated.  For those that don't care, they meet the
clue stick. :)

I'll be happy to do so when I run across them.  You are right, it
isn't just a point-and-click simple solution.  Like security, this is
not a 'product', rather it is a system.  If the success rate of
keeping unwanted email addresses out reach 99.9%, then to me that is
a success.
