6)  Do not respond to messages that do not explicitly contain your
    address in the To: or Cc: headers.

7)  If you really must respond, do so to the SMTP reverse-path, not the
    From: or Reply-to: header address

8)  Use a null reverse path for the OOO, and list owners configure lists
    to reject or route for moderation anything with a null reverse path.
