The Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG) has approved two groups
of documents as experimental RFCs for proposed anti-spam mechanisms.
RFCs to be entitled 'Sender Policy Framework (SPF) for Authorizing Use
of Domains in E-Mail' and 'Sender ID: Authenticating E-Mail' describe
two different approaches to domain-based authorization for systems
sending mail.

The current document approvals are part of ongoing activities within the
Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to explore new technical
solutions that combat the problem of spam. Experimental RFCs are not
standards - they are specifications that are published for the general
information of the Internet technical community.
