Microsoft still burdening anti-spam standards with licencing requirements
Also, what is the IETF doing considering encumbered technologies for inclusion in any kind of "open" standard?
Sender ID loses supporters - ZDNet UK News
Seems we can stop worrying about this: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/09/13/ietf_bounces_sender_id/It's funny how MS will sometimes stand in their own way. Or, rather, how their laywers will sometimes stand in their way.
When I read about Sender-ID, I assumed this had been resolved, based on SPF's unencumbered status, if nothing else. When I read it wasn't, I really did hope that the IETF would take note. I probably read about Sender-ID based on a press-release or something well before the IETF and Marid had a chance to see an actual proposal. It looks like there was just a bit of delay on all of this information getting nice and public.
