Re: Future of E-mail… firstname.lastname@example.org
I thought about this kind of thing too. Problem was I didn\’t want to become an email provider simply to provide a cool convenience feature. I\’m not an email guru. Do email protocol servers have a wildcard DNS type feature?
Gets you somewhere in the bowels of the email server and winds up in the \’unknown address\’ bucket. I get a response back normally that tells me that it\’s an invalid address. Nobody here like that buddy.
What if that \’unknown address\’ reponse got hooked and we looked up valid wpmu usernames instead of valid email users? Don’t create email accounts. Just respond to matches with vaild users for incoming only events.
