Okay, I've had a look at SPF.

It suffers the same problem as digital signing. It requires that all of your email correspondants use it in order for it to be effective.

As an email user, I don't have control over how my correspondants use email. The only thing I have control over is what email address I give them. By piggy-backing a username and password in the address I give each of my correspondants, I can identify and authenticate them - without buy in from them.

That is the essence of this Segmail spec - and what makes it different from DSPAM, SPF, Statistical Junk Mail Filters, Challenge/Response systems and Digital Signing.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
