Configurable Action for SPF Errors

| Last activity: 6 years ago
Configurable action for unresolvable or syntactically incorrect SPF records. This feature would allow tagging or rejecting emails if the SPF record of the sender domain is syntactically incorrect, or cannot be resolved due to non-existent DNS records. Vamsoft disclaimer: Please consider that having a syntactically incorrect or unresolvable SPF record in no way indicates the sender is a spammer (such problems could be caused by configuration errors, or temporary DNS issues, which are quite common), so blacklisting emails based on this criteria is guaranteed to cause false positives (losing legitimate emails).

Sender Callout Verification

| Last activity: more than 10 years ago
Add a new test for Sender Callout Verifications. This type of test connects back to the email sender's server and attempts to find out if the sender is valid, by starting an SMTP conversation (no email is actually sent). If the sender's email address is rejected as invalid by the sender's email server, the sender email address is considered forged and the email is blacklisted. [Note from Vamsoft: The value and side-effects of this anti-spam technique is disputed in the industry. For instance, simultaneous Sender Callout Verifications from thousands of servers (as a result of a major spam breakout with forged sender email addresses) can result in a kind of Denial Of Service attack performed against the forged sender's email servers].

Challenge / Response (C/R) Spam Filtering

| Last activity: 8 years ago
A feature to send a reply email automatically with a challenge to unknown senders. The sender is asked to perform some action to assure delivery of the original message, which would otherwise not be delivered. Senders that have previously performed the challenging action would be automatically whitelisted.
