This is why we need an Internet Mail Services Association in which email operators set standards and agree on how to operate the Internet email transport system. This group would have the goal of providing a high quality email service to all users. If that quality standard includes maintaining and using an audit trail, then the association members will do so. You cannot solve email operational problems by purely technical means. --Michael Dillon
