SpamAssassin has released version 3.1.0 of their fine spam filter product, and it includes support for the Institute for Spam and Internet Public Policy’s wonderful Email Senders Accreditation Program!

This means that SpamAssassin will check to see whether a sender is listed with ISIPP’s Email Sender Accreditation program when deciding whether a piece of email is spam or not!


According to ISIPP, their Email Senders Accreditation Program “gives the receivers (ISPs and spam filters, such as SpamAssassin) what they really want to know. Rather than telling ISPs and spam filters that they should accept your email because we say so, we actually give the email receiver all of the good information about your mailing practices, each and every time they check with us before processing your email. This lets the ISP, spam filter, or other email receiver know that they can safely accept and deliver your email, because they can tell in real-time that your email is legitimate, wanted mail.”

Other changes in the new SpamAssassin include rules to deal with new Yahoo naming conventions, to catch redirections using EmailFactory, to tweak how SPF is handled, and a new test for PayPal and eBay phishing email. They also include a DomainKeys plug-in.

SpamAssassin is a wonderful server-side spam filter, and can be had for free from SpamAssassin.org
