  • New Tool To Battle Spam? – DKIM

    Posted on May 25th, 2007 Andy Parkes 2 comments

    The BBC is reporting about industry backing for a tool to battle spam

    It’s called DomainKeys Identified Mail and works by using digital signatures.

    The organisation that is setting this up can be found here

    Nice idea in practise but first thing that sprang to mind was

    “What happened to Sender ID & SPF?”

    There is a page on the site buy ativan from india that shows who is backing the standard and you’ll notice there is no Microsoft or Google on the list.

    Will this be an idea that comes to the fore? or will it just fall away and everyone will forget about it in six months?

    1. DKIM is not an anti-spam technique, at least not directly. We need other pieces of the puzzle before it’s useful for fighting spam. See m’blog for more.

    2. Thanks Richi,

      I didn’t technically say it was an anti-spam tool

      Thanks for the blog link though…very interesting reading
