Re: Micorsoft's Sender ID Authentication......?
In part the problem was 'legal' (versus technical)...the folks involved in the working list from MS...technical people, offered ongoing reassurance that the as-yet-unpublished patent apps were benign, that it would always be available free, etc. etc... but once the patent apps were published, they were far over-reaching, included SPF aspects, etc.. (I have _zero_ doubt that the legal/corporate folks upstairs at MS were responsible for that, and that the good folks from MS on the working list were as surprised as were the rest of us).Wasn't there a lot of turmoil within the IETF last year on sender authentication because Microsoft was trying to push it's own sender ID authetication mechasnisms as a draft standard?
