Since you asked... You're pretty much right on the money. Coming from an
infosec standpoint, I think there should be a two-stage authentication
for incoming e-mail:

* User specifies what e-mail addresses can send him mail.
* Authorized users need to enter a "password" in the subject line for
each message.

This way this snuffs any kind of "accidental" leakage of spam-ish
material onto the APRS network.
