Hi there,

I suppose this may be already been answered but I didn´t find it...

How do I set up my Caller ID record? If I lookt at the MS site, they talk about a XML file to be stored on an TXT record? How do I do that?

Has anybody do this? and... there are som easy "for fools" "Idiot guide to set up your caller ID Record" similar as the one for SPF?

Thank you for any help, people!.

Caller ID appears to have been abandoned by Microsoft. They merged Caller ID and SPF into Sender ID, which as near as I can tell is just another name for SPF. They even have a Sender ID wizard on their site ( http://www.microsoft.com/mscorp/safety/content/technologies/ senderid/wizard/default.aspx ) which generates an SPF record. They used to have a document explaining how to set up a Caller ID record, but I can't seem to find it any more.

I can tell you from experience using Caller ID, it never catches anything. It only works if you set it to 'Apply this policy also to the testing Caller ID records', because everyone has their record set to testing. In my experience, it causes problems if you use this setting. People seemed to stop updating their Caller ID records, so the records out there are outdated.

About the only thing I've found Caller ID useful for is checking your incoming mail to insure no one is spoofing your domain name in the from address. It only works though, if the From header in the message contains an e-mail address with your domain name, but the SMTP envelope used to deliver the message uses another domain (like when people override the from address on their Blackberry) - otherwise SPF catches it first. It's a lot of DNS lookups for such a limited use.

Is this true? I was just wondering, since I have KMS set to block messages if they have an INVALID caller ID, how do I set up MY caller id?

So it doesn't do anything? Has anyone informed KERIO? If so, I assume Caller ID has been dropped from KMS 3.0 (set to come out later this month.)

Anyone know more about this?

Umm, this thread is about the user wanting to create a CallerID record for their domain, not about KMS checking incoming connections for CallerID records. We are not dropping support for CallerID lookups. AFAIK there are no issues with KMS's CallerID lookup functions. I think sedell was pointing out that most domains with CallerID records have not set them up to give the 'hardfail' result but rather the 'softfail'. Messages are only rejected on hardfails.

Contact your DNS administrator (the company/person that manages the DNS records for your domain).
