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
