When used for a public mail address, not a mailing list, qconfirm is capable of detecting follow-ups on mail messages originated from this mail address, and doesn't request delivery confirmation is this case. qconfirm also is able to identify delivery confirmation requests from recipients of mail messages, and automatically confirms the delivery if desired.
A mailing list archive is available at gmane.
qconfirm-check defers messages from unknown envelope senders temporarily, and sends a confirmation request message to the sender. The original message and all newer messages from the same sender will be deferred temporarily until a reply to the confirmation request is received. The messages bounce if queuelifetime has expired. New messages from the same sender do not result in new confirmation requests.
Once an envelope sender has confirmed a delivery, qconfirm-check permanently treats this envelope sender as known.
The messages bounce if queuelifetime has expired.
