DKIM? About four years late, but better late than never. The .mail proposal we put forth in 2003 would have ensured that authenticated mail couldn't be forged and would have squeezed spam to the point where it could have been safely ignored before ever reaching your server.

But ICANN thought the plan wasn't worthy of being approved. It's amazing I'm not more bitter :-)


I'd just advocate mail bonds. Emails from DSL machines are blackholed unless they put up a bond. This bond can be vouched by Anti Virus vendors, who build it into their annual subscriptions.
