Is this the "solution" we want for email? Contrary to fax, I can't disconnect
Most SPAMMERS (legit or not) will think twice if they know they can be prosecuted... Think about Caller ID for telephones...Signing email <> Caller ID . Signed email cannot prevent spam and does not
burden spammers. It may be useful for listservs, however, such as this one (see
my previous posting with a catch-all reply in this thread).
