On second thought, I know that you know this field well enough that I
*must* have misunderstood your message.
Could you please restate your missive in such a way that it's clear:
- What problem you think the IETF can help solve
- What action you think the IETF should take to solve it?
I'm afraid the whole spam thing has gotten so convoluted by now that I need
instructions in large type to figure out which path out of the weeds you're

The IP address of the SMTP client can be found within an ASN to uncover
a network provider. Helos might verify, which may then also identify a
domain used by a network provider's customer. Of course the host names
within the reverse PTR may also verify as well. Identifying the network
provider is perhaps the most reliable, as an IP address represents a
basic element of message interchange and routing.
