- Page has been moved to Email filtering, without the hyphen in "e-mail", to represent the most common spelling.
- I've been advised about Mail filter. Will consider merging articles.
Articles Anti-spam techniques (users), Anti-spam techniques and Email Authentication provide the details of mail filtering. An idea for further improvement and redesign (see Talk:Anti-spam techniques#The 2012 merging proposal (server + users)) envisages four parts:
- an overarching one with lots of theory and explanation of mail headers and authentication and so on without being biased towards what might happen at the ISP level,
- a part from the users' perspective (possibly named something like "spam recognition and trapping") dealing specifically what mail clients and users see,
- another on spam filtering and blacklisting at the receiving mail server/ISP end, and
- another on protocols/laws/history of what mail servers may allow to pass/relay (and international laws/conventions as to what steps they might take at a system level to vet what may pass)
This page seems to me the best candidate for the first entry, Anti-spam techniques (users) for the second, while the two other articles, together, give a fairly good account of the third argument.
