Mail whoes

Got a nasty surprise today after working on the Issue Dealer and setting it up as a support back-end for email. Had some mail aliases and such going and email addresses that wasn't registered with the mail handler so things started looping.

Ended up with 10's of thousands of mail messages in my inbox, and managed to starve our main mail system of resources so that some customers complained about being able to login and receiving mail.

But oh well, lesson learned here as well. Be very, very careful with aliases and programming email applications. Sending is simple enough; but receiving, handling and sending is another matter entirely.
