DKIM and Thunderbird 2.0

Send to Kindle

In an effort to get a handle on who is signing messages with DKIM, I just added a message filter which automatically tags and stars any message that has been signed. I can now visually see which domains/users are DKIM-enabled, and get a sense for whether the mass is coming, and how quickly, etc.

This will also let me write better spam filters against DKIM messages, because I’ll have more data to analyze without have to waste time opening headers that aren’t appropriately tagged.

If I learn anything useful (which is doubtful), I’ll report back…

    What are your current results? Is DKIM coming. I heard rumors about DKIM to be non applicable to real-world.

    I still find DKIM signing useful, and it a good (fast) filter for some spam tests. That said, it still hasn’t caught on as quickly or widely as I would have hoped, and some companies still produce invalid signed headers, even though they are legitimate companies trying to do the right thing. Disappointing, but I’m still hopeful.
