It's very interesting that while PayPal may be "too timid to use FAIL in
their SPF or PRA policies," they /have/ -- with much public fanfare --
made deals with Yahoo! and other ISPs to reject any messages that can't
be verified with DomainKeys or DKIM.
There'll surely be more of these 1:1 agreements, while we wait for SSP
to become useful. If we wait long enough, SSP won't even be necessary
for the big, high-value signers & verifiers.
