Key Messaging Issues for 2007
Free Webinar. Wednesday, January 10, 2007
8:30am Pacific, 11:30am Eastern, 4:30pm UK, 5:30pm CET. One hour duration.
David Ferris kicks off the new year with a webinar on what Ferris Research sees as the main issues for email support staff during 2007 and beyond. He'll address a range of subjects, including how quickly Exchange 2007 and Notes/Domino 7 will be adopted, and when encrypted email is likely to become practical.
Sender authentication (AKA sender authorization) is an important addition to the email standards set. It helps email recipients determine if a message has been forged. Senders currently have two main ways to vouch for the authenticity of their messages: Sender Policy Framework (with the related Sender ID Framework) and Domain Keys Identified Mail. In this webinar, speakers from Microsoft, Datran Media, and Sendmail discuss the different methods of sender authentication and offer suggestions for its use.
