Automatically banning email addresses

Starting with today, a filter is running on my mail server which will automatically ban every bouncing email address.

The ban only has effect on the webdirectory for now, like the filter will automatically delete all submissions associated with the banned email address.

Soon, I will write another script to be run automatically on a cron job that will ping all the email addresses currently in the web directory to validate all the addresses. I will also add a validation to the submission form so that banned emails will no longer be able to submit.

Considering the amount of bouncing emails I used to receive daily, this should reduce the amount of most-probably-invalid submissions in the web directory.
