SMTP SPF: Sender Policy Framework
: Considerable progress on this anti-spam protocol: software available for many MTAs; a wizard for generating new DNS records; supported so far by 14,000 domains. "SMTP has a security hole: any connecting client can assert any sender address. This flaw has been exploited by spammers to forge mail. The result: your mailbox fills up with bounces to messages that you didn't send. Close the hole, and we can easily block spammers by sender domain." 2:57:51 PM
IDrive - Online Storage Network Drive
: New service from iBackup. "IDrive maps your IBackup online storage account as a local drive on your computer allowing you to drag-n-drop, open, edit and save files in your online backup account as if they were on your local computer. Recommended for most users for its ease of installation and 128 bit SSL support.
IDrive Plus is another variation of Network Drive technology (available only for XP and 2000) with ability to support Concurrent Operations for Access, Act! and many other applications in addition to all the features of IDrive. IDrive Plus is the recommended Network Drive application if you have a need to directly edit large office files such as Access and Act!. It is more efficient as it sends only changes over the network, and reads only what is necessary for direct edits and saves. Unlike Network Drive solutions from competing services, IDrive Plus does not do background downloading of files first. It is a true Internet Network Drive technology." 11:57:31 AM
