As I understand the basics of forum spam software like xrummer there's no real e-mail addresses. The software tool fills in all the necessary fields of the registration form and then catches a message from your mailserver to create the right answer.

So the ideas of publishing the spammer e-mails is a kind of utopia. They are almost useless.

There needs to be an email address for the registration email to go to

 

and if the "Tool" they use manages to catch the email then the email address again has to be valid

 

also if you read about Xrumer you would see that 

 

 

 

As per the latest update to XRumer 7 the software is able to automatically register e-mail accounts on mail.ru (Russian IP addresses only) and Gmail
