Sender ID @ Microsoft

InfoWorld is reporting that Microsoft has decided to enforce Sender ID on all email sent to its Hotmail, MSN & email addresses from October 1.

Microsoft will begin matching the source of inbound e-mail to the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of e-mail servers listed in that sending domain’s SPF record by Oct. 1. Messages that fail the check will not be rejected, but will be further scrutinized and filtered, said Craig Spiezle, director of Microsoft’s Safety Technology and Strategy Group.

Though I’m running my SMTP server on my PC, I’m still happy about this development. :)

The report itself makes a very interesting read and gives a pretty good overview of the whole anti-spam scene and how Sender ID ties into the scheme of things.
