Spam Fighters Turn to Identifying Legitimate E-Mail
: Partial summary of standards-based anti-spam efforts. "Put simply, these efforts are trying to develop the Internet equivalent of caller ID, a technology that will let the receiver of an e-mail message verify the identity of the sender. As with caller ID for telephones, senders will be able to choose whether to remain anonymous. But also like caller ID, recipients may presume that those who do not identify themselves are sending junk. The loudest calls for such a system are coming from the banks, travel companies and online stores that are finding that much of their e-mail is getting caught in spam filters." Per-message and per-MTA authentication methods compete for attention. 10:30:06 AM
