Default Hotmail takes a tougher stance on spam

If incoming mail doesn't pass a Sender ID check Microsoft is placing it in a junk mail folder and sometimes even deleting it.

There are some others doing something similar. But the fact that Hotmail is so big is a big plus.

It would be nice is more would do something such as this, especially the Internet Service Providers. Possibly this will happen in the future.

There are a number of things I would love to see completely eliminated. It won't be much of a surprise to many Geek/Talk members that my top three are spam, spyware and popup advertising.

I hope that this system is able to work 100% of the time with complete accuracy and no one ever receives any email from a phony address. That would be a very big step in the reduction of spam. Hopefully the day will come when spam is completely eliminated. The only spam I want to remain is the Spam that comes in a can so that I can make Spam sandwiches.

More details are in the article below.

Sure would be nice if it puts a dent in spam, but it surely will not eliminate it. All it will really do (when 100% implemented by all parties) is give a high-level of comfort that the sender IS who the sender says they are. Bulk mail will still go through... we'll just feel more confident that we know who sent it then.

Spammers will still surely look for ways to hide their identity... and will look for any loophole they can find in the implementation.
