Is there any plans to support SPF in the mail server?

I just tried to setup Microsoft's Caller ID with our DNS service (ZoneEdit.com), and they don't support an underscore in their domain names.

So basically, we cannot fully support caller-id at this time. However, SPF is very simple and does not have the same DNS requirements... plus its dynamic to changes in the DNS settings.

Any comments from the Kerio beta team on SPF?

(the beta is looking REALLY good guys)

Hey dmartz. SPF and Caller-ID have been merged into a single spec called "Sender ID."

I believe that Kerio will support it once it is a finalized IETF standard.

I just read on spf.pobox.com that as quickly as Microsoft and POBOX merged their ideas into "Sender ID", it died.

From what I read, it became apparent that 99.9% of the new specification was the original SPF with Microsoft's name attached to it.

So it could very well be that "Caller Id" and "Sender Id" are dead and SPF is the standard. As for Yahoo's proposal, nobody seems to be taking it seriously.

Could you provide a URL for this information? I can't find anything backing this up on the SPF website.

In an interview with an SPF fellow on July 1st, he gives no indication that Microsoft has pulled out of this project:

http://www.circleid.com/article/634_0_1_0_C/

Regardless, it would be marvelous to see Kerio support SPF in the mean time. I reckon that this new published standard will not be formalized for quite some time. Due to the horrendous spam situation, consumers need tools now. SPF is immensely more popular than Caller-ID. Over 20,000 domains have registered with the SPF registry.

Please? Pretty please, Kerio?

Well, SpamAssassin 3.0 will support SPF natively, so you never know... Smile
