    Yeah, right. It's a great idea, but how would this be enforced? The internet email protocols used today can't do it. It would take an entirely rebuilt email infrastructure to make it happen, and even then, forged identities will always be possible.

    I think that's the idea. Microsoft wants the internet to completely throw away SMTP and replace it with a brand new protocol that Microsoft is in total control of.

    This will force all those Linux people to switch to Windows (yeah, right :rolleyes: ), which is what Gates really wants.

    So Microsoft will help eliminate spam. I think it would do better to take a look at its self and fix it's huge gaping security holes in Winblows.
