Microsoft to merge Caller ID for email with SPF anti-spam technology

Thursday, 27 May 2004, 4:27 PM EST

On Tuesday, Microsoft revealed that it will merge its Caller ID for Email technology with a competing scheme for email authentication, dubbed Sender Policy Framework (SPF), which was created by Meng Wong, the co-founder and CTO of Pobox.com.

The combined technology proposals will be merged into a single proposal that will soon be submitted to the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standards body for consideration as an Internet standard. Previously, Microsoft had planned to propose its Caller ID for Email as a standard, but had noted that the technology was complementary to other similar proposals.
