Forward spam to spam-collecting addresses
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210 [RFE] Would it be wise to--when a piece an email is marked or tagged automatically as spam--forward spam to firstname.lastname@example.org or any other email of our liking? The destination where our spam gets sent could be a user preference. Even better, if Mozilla had a distributed spam checking mechanism I think the filter would be x1000 times more powerful. But, yes, for this Mozilla would need a database and all that fancy stuff to keep track of it, but hey, it would be great. If 999 other users marked a message as spam and I happen to get it, too, there is no need for my client to have been "trained" on anything: if Mozilla finds that a lot of my peers think some message is spam then I'll mark it as spam, too, without even thinking twice. In any case, forwarding our spam to email@example.com or other similar addresses would help getting rid (or at least help identifying) spam at a much larger scale, once the goverment (or whatever entity you forward your spam to) implements laws and rules and the like. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: This is a request for an enhancement.
