My question then, if the MARID you propose is a whitelisting
is what is the difference between "Spam filter" and "MARID + Spam
MARID + Spam filter will eliminate 100% of false positives in the case
that the sender can be authenticated AND authorized.
Yes, I understand this. MARID doesn't propose anything to do with
authorization though, so you confused the issue for me (and I hope
others). Without authorization this way of looking at MARID buys you
nothing as far as I can see.
This *is* different to the SPF proposal (and other LMAP schemes that
propose to reject on MAIL FROM), which aim to stop invalid bounces for
mail I didn't send.
