Post Date: 08/23/2004

Boca Raton, FL - Host.net announces today that it supports Sender Policy Framework (SPF), a system that fights email forgery and makes it easier to identify spams, scams, worms and viruses. Host.net is encouraging all of its customers with their own domain names pointing to Host.net's nameservers to supply valid SPF data to be placed within their zone file(s). Further, Host.net's own mail servers support SPF and will tag email with the status of the sender's SPF record (pass or fail) within the header of the message. Most users can optionally change their mail settings on Host.net's mail servers themselves to decide what to do with mail that fails an SPF check.
