Re: A Note To All
If you send and receive from Yahoo! mail then Yahoo! domain keys will
verify that you have received from legitimate Yahoo! user. It's always
better to go for an open discussion instead of IM as some one can re use
the discussion instead of reinventing the wheel. You could easily read
the mail on the web instead of delivering directly to your mail box.
These days spammers are using more and more picture messages than the
text messages. If you are using Yahoo! mail when you receive a mail you
could see the whole header from where you can see which IP address it
was originated from by going through
Common let's look this example there are always road accidents will this
stopped driving/riding in the road?. There is always be some problem
but I hope will not stop your endeavor. These days spammers send picture
messages to get rid to spam filter. But still I feel Yahoo! is doing
better spam control than my office one where I get 10-20 unwanted
messages not categorized as spam. But I still feel Yahoo! should improve
spam control especially the picture messages using an OCR (Optical
Character Recognition) software to make sure that doen't contain text
but really a picture.
There are advantages too in the IM that allows face to face discussion
that I don't deny. I am one of the Administrators in Tamil Wikipedia the
free encyclopedia. I hope Yahoo! can make use of Media Wiki software to
provide wiki solutions where users can provide solutions.

- Well, I use Thunderbird so your suggestions don't apply to me. My
message filters delete 100% of the spam, so I don't have any problems
IM me! Sasafrass452(Yahoo)
