Sender ID for everyone!
In an attempt to promote the use of Sender ID, Microsoft is making this e-mail security technology available under its Open Specification Promise (OSP) program. This means that users will be able to implement, commercialize and modify Microsoft's patented e-mail authentication technology without having to sign a licensing agreement.
"REDMOND, Wash. — Oct. 23, 2006 — Microsoft Corp. today announced that its Sender ID Framework specification for e-mail authentication is now available under the company’s Open Specification Promise (OSP), an irrevocable promise to every individual in the world that they can make use of the covered Microsoft® technology easily and for free. This is another step forward in the company’s commitment to delivering interoperability by design."
