Something that could help considerably would be if mail server admins,
and service providers generally, banned or at least strongly discouraged
use of the mail-bounce option, which spammers deliberately abuse.
Mailbox users who have control of this aspect of mailserver operation
should be aware of the inadvisability of bouncing badly addressed mail,
in that it can get you a rep as an open relay.
