Spammers Most Likely Users Of E-Mail Authentication

Gregg Keizer, TechWeb News

On the eve of an industry summit to discuss how e-mail authentication can stem the flood of spam, one security firm says that spammers are already using the protocols -- to slip their junk mail past filters.

Is it just possible we are going about this all wrong? As I have suggested before, without credit cards spam would not be possible. If Visa, MasterCard, et al, were to alter their terms of service to ban spammers this would all come to a quick end.
