CNET wonders whether SMTP has outlived its useful life. At first I assumed they were referring to the problem of open relays, but the gist is that SMTP is too trusting — it behaves as if you are who you say are. No accountability = spammer’s delight. In fact, the creator of SMTP is amazed it’s still around. I’m skeptical that a non-spoofable protocol could be developed, even in theory.
