Group to promote domain-level accreditation

In an effort to bolster e-mail user confidence and see that more legitimate business correspondence finds its way to intended recipients, a vendor group has organized to promote domain-level accreditation and reputation services as preferred protective methods over those based on IP addresses.

Called the Domain Assurance Council (DAC), the organization says it intends to work together on best practices and technical solutions, in particular the promotion of the Domain Keys Identified Mail (DKIM) approach being championed by Yahoo and Cisco.

"DAC will also support the development of protocol standards to allow members to add new types of domain identity and reputation information so that these extensions are universally available to all consumers of the domain information, such ISPs, enterprise e-mail gateways and antispam solution vendors," the group says in its initial press release.

IronPort, Habeas and About Return Path, are the vendors spearheading this initiative. The group's directors are John Levine and Paul Hoffman.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
