No, the spamtrap works like this: 1) spam is sent to several email accounts on your system because emails are found on forums or whatever and easy targets 2) added spamtrap email looks legit and will also be added to the spamming roster 3) real email and spamtrap email will be spammed with the same email 4) postfix will discard all emails that were sent to both the spamtrap email and the real email addresses You can put the spamtrap emails in hidden HTML code and all that crap to get them out there, as well. Basically, it just adds another line of defense. I had my real email address shown on this forum for a few months. My spam went up like mad as a result. I added the spamtrap to my signature and what not, helped reduce it by about 10 a day since both emails were present for their spam-finding spiders. Again, taken individually some of these steps won't be that great of a help. But, when you implement all of this as a collective you will see a great reduction. Still not sure? Pretend that we're on the Death Star and we want to send get rid of those pesky Storm Troopers before they find our vulnerable spot. So, we force their ship into a Black Hole. No more Storm Troopers! Spam trap is the black hole for SciFi people.
