    Why not just add a captcha to every email sent?

    Lol, I know this won't stop spam but it would seriously cut down on the volume of it.

    They still will spam if it costs money.. if they have a good enough ROI. Especially if this stamp makes you look more authentic (higher conversions?)

    I don't see how that could be implemented at the moment. It would be the recievers who end up footing the charge and who's going to write the encrytion for these virtual stamps? that'll be dead in the water before it ever gets off the ground.
