Re: Email users

The key in sendmail.cf is:

O PrivacyOptions=goaway

if you change this in sendmail.cf people around the world can do the following steps in your mail server:

telnet <your-server> 25

and make

vrfy <name_of_user>

if the server responds

expn <name_of_user>

means that the user exists on the server

Subject: Email users

I have a question about sendmail and mail in general.
I want to know is it possible to know if there are some specific users in some specific servers.
for example On mydomain.com I have user myuser mydomain com, and people from outside want to know if this user exists or not ?, so how can they do that ?. I mean to know this, without sending email. Otherwise they can send email, and if the mail does not come back, It means the user exists :).
Or without sending email to him, how can I know, is there a such user ivantan singtel com  ?.
Thanks in advance.
