Well, we don't support rsend or anything like it
because it is not easy to decide
 
1. Whose quota to update... it would be easy for someone to
	double or triple his quota using such a mechanism.
 
2. When the request is unsolicited, or when someone is trying to
	spam or use www4mail to force a webpage to a mailing list.
	How does the server know that your From: address is correct?
	Imagine using a fake From address to force www4mail to send
	the web page of your choice to a list with 2000 people.....

3. E-mail addresses are supposed to work both ways (sending & receiving)
