A Clarification About SPF and IP Reputation
Expanding on: Steve Kille's recent bulletin about IP reputation. SPF isn't exactly a "reputation mechanism" -- although it can be used to help identify the sender, in order to make improved reputation-based decisions.

SPF, DKIM, and other "sender authentication" schemes help a receiving MTA decide if it knows which domain sent a message. For example, SPF can tell if the sending IP address is authorized to send mail claiming to be from example.com and DKIM can tell if the incoming message was signed by example.com's private key.

If the receiving MTA knows the sending domain, it doesn't need to rely on the reputation of the sending IP address, which can be a blunt instrument. It allows domains themselves to have reputations. It's especially useful for whitelisting known-good domains, so that mail from them doesn't fall victim to the false-positive problem.

(Another common way of describing SPF et al is: mechanisms to detect forgeries, which amounts to the same thing but in a different context.) ... Richi Jennings
