Desperately seeking: Widespread adoption of SenderID

After attempting for days to e-mail my entries for this blog to David Berlind so he could post them, and after losing most of those e-mails in a black hole due to aggressive but necessary spam and anti-virus filtering, I just can't wait another year for SenderID (consolidation of SPF and Microsoft's CallerID) to be mandated.

The reason I say this with such conviction is not because I've been calling for this since 2002, but because with those schemes in place, if I receive an email that purports to be form JohnDoe@aol.com, then it is extremely likely that it did indeed come from JohnDoe@aol.com.
