Re: The IETF needs your input about the Spamops document
A draft specification has been submitted to the IETF for standardization as a "Best Current Practices". Information about the document is at: <http://mipassoc.org/spamops/>
The name is inaccurate, its not about anti-spam operations, the document is about use and configuration of email submission service on the Internet.
The document is in the final stages of a public "Last Call" process,
Which so far it is failing miserably on the security and other grounds, see http://www1.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/ietf/current/index.html archive for last 7 days
FYI - It appears security reviewers do not like CRAM-MD5 being promoted byduring which the IETF's management Steering Group obtains input about interest in the document and hears about possible problems with it.
by this draft as way to authenticate SMTP for submission. There are some
other problems that have been noted and perhaps NANOG operations people will find something else that would be of interest to hear.
This document did not get developed within the IETF. So there is no record of community interest.
That some document is not developed in IETF, does not mean there is no record of community interest. -- William Leibzon Elan Networks [email protected]
