I think a character count should be also be developed.  We don't want people
sending 30 line email messages over APRS.

Since you asked... You're pretty much right on the money. Coming from an
infosec standpoint, I think there should be a two-stage authentication
for incoming e-mail:

* User specifies what e-mail addresses can send him mail.
* Authorized users need to enter a "password" in the subject line for
each message.

This way this snuffs any kind of "accidental" leakage of spam-ish
material onto the APRS network.
