I have web contact pages which are used by anyone to send enquiries.

I want to make sure that anyone using them has a valid reply address set
in a web form BEFORE I forward the message on to the site administrators.


Mailer is exim, and that's currently but not necessarily invoked by the
php mail() function.


what I want is a function like

is_valid_mail("user12345(at)gmail(dot)com")

that will return true or false if gmail accepts the user as known (yes
the spam is always @gmail.com) WITHOUT having to write a dns mx lookup,
then connect to socket 25 and etc etc etc..

exim -bt tells me if the domain is valid, but not the user.

I am not particular how its achieved - anything can be merged into the
existing code.

anyone done this?

Ineptocracy

(in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to
lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the
members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are
rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a
diminishing number of producers.
