I'm testing this.... and I encourage others to do so as well.
I created a bogus email account on my mail server. Then sent some emails to a mistyped domain that resolved to the verisign 188.8.131.52
I'm also trying telneting in and putting my BS address in a standard MAIL FROM command.
This new address has never been used and doesn't exist on any web page. I administer this mail server; It's very small, not like an ISPs server so dictionary attacks are unlikely.
We'll see if my honeypot gets any hits.
