Sender Authentication
Free Webinar. Wednesday, February 21, 2007
8:30am Pacific, 11:30am Eastern, 4:30pm UK, 5:30pm CET. One hour.

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.
