Will SPF/Microsoft Hybrid Stop SMTP Burn?

As an IT manager, you're more likely than an end user to recognize spam as a problem in the workplace, and to predict that spam will be a message-related problem you'll still be dealing with in 2007, according to InsightExpress, a Stamford, CT research firm. But not only do IT personnel bear the technical burden of spam; the department must also field the complaints when users get fed up. Now an initiative is underway that lets administrators take matters into their own hands, and reduce the amount of spam the servers download—without requiring blacklists, fee-based mail, challenge/response schemes, or content filters. Before I describe the Sender ID approach to the problem, though, let's look at the problem as Sender ID attacks it.
