Yahoo! Adds DomainKeys to Web Mail

In the first step to encouraging broader support of its DomainKeys anti-spam technology, Yahoo! has announced it will integrate the e-mail authentication method into its Web-based e-mail. DomainKeys uses public and private keys to verify the origin of an e-mail, requiring both the sender and recipient mail servers to utilize the technology. Thus far, Earthlink and Google have said they will adopt DomainKeys, but giants AOL and Microsoft are backing alternate anti-spam proposals - namely SPF and Sender ID.
