Re: RFC-822 gurus - Do spammers know when we delete their mail

However, the OP was wondering if deleting the email is almost as bad as 
verifying you are a valid address by clicking on a fiendish "click here to 
unsubscribe" in a spam email.  You're right - a spammer may not care, but 
someone who sells a spamming service with verified addresses might.

The spammer isn't going to get the response ... the from address has
been spoofed (in 99% of the cases), so innocent person will simply get a
confirmation that your email address is valid.
