I just sent Andre a test message, and he is at a .mac address so it does 
seem to work. I had to try several times before the script would get the 
mx record but then it went through okay.

It's pretty cool. I think it would be suitable for embedding into my own 
software for users to send me feedback. I'd probably hide or disguise my 
email address in a password-protected stack so the user can't pass it 
around. Otherwise it seems fairly safe to me. The down side is that 
possibly not all servers will work with it; we'd need more testing to know.
