    Thanks for the article.

    My ISP doesn't use SenderID but has implemented a new program with his MDaemon server software; I rarely get spam anymore, and no virus attachments at all.

    sans.org has been pushing the idea for a long time that ISPs can do much more than they are. The big problem is the expense, especially for a small, local ISP like mine. But he is committed to providing the best service, so I applaud him for that.


    regards,

    Incredible statistic any way you look at it.

    That's for sure!

    What would you suggest to persuade more ISPs to get on the bandwagon to add to those statistics?!

    Jailtime? :blink: It will probably take an effort by users of various ISP's to insist on spam protection. No spam protection, no business.
