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. david
