  3. Automatic challenge emails to confirm sender as human is bad for two main reasons, if spammer is using a fraudulent sending email address this program will send the challenge email to an innocent 3rd party or if it is a non-existant sender address it will send it to the bit bin in the sky… this is called backscatter and is considered SPAM in itself by the innocent recipient of it and adds to the spurious email traffic that is caused by spam in the first place. If the mail is sent by a SPAM bot that creates its own email addresses on some of the classic free webmails like windows live, Yahoo and Gmail then the challenge email just confirms your email address to be valid and active making you a high value email address to be hit again with more spam. Spam filtering is best done as a layered approach starting at the receiving email server firewall and at each stage from there to the end users inbox use an appropriate piece of anti-spam technology that does not attempt to comunicate with the sender of the email directly other than in the case of the firewall or server itself to simply and silently block or drop the spammiest sessions.
