Again in terms of large mass mailers, we do agree that infrastructure
will have to be in place to adaquately meet origination record

receiving email and can easily be interfaced into a central data

implementation model than rewriting the SMTP protocol, DNS, or
rebranding old anti-spam tests as new methods of prevention.
Your concern shouldn't be the mass mailers, it should be the big ISPs
that have 10s of million mails outbound daily. Centrally storing info
for all that mail is a real scalability concern. And unlike the mass
mailers, you can't just tell these people 'suck it up', as they are
responsible for large portions of legitimate mail on the internet.
