Internet mail suffers from the fact that much unwanted mail is sent
using spoofed addresses -- "spoofed" in this case means that the address
is used without the permission of the domain owner.  This document
describes a family of tests by which SMTP servers can determine
whether an e-mail address in a received message was used with the
permission of the owner of the domain contained in that e-mail
address.  This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.

HISTORIC: This memo defines a Historic Document for the Internet
community.  It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind.
Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
