I’m not sure if you’ve read about this but I wanted to let you in on a not-so-well kept secret. In fact, you should pass this on to all your friends that don’t have a Yahoo! email address. Yahoo!, along with eBay and PayPal, announced recently that we’ll all be collaborating to protect you against fraudulent emails and phishing attacks. Read the full press release here.
Why is that good news for us Yahoo! Mail users?
Now that eBay and Paypal are confidently using DomainKeys we will begin taking strong action against fraudulent, spoofed messages. This is great news for those of us with eBay and Paypal accounts. And this should encourage other online companies to sign up for authentication and DomainKeys/DKIM, making e-mail safer for everyone.
Our corporate blog has more info. You can read it here.
