America Online has decided not to fully support Microsoft's Sender ID spam-fighting plan after the Internet Engineering Task Force and the open-source community expressed intellectual property concerns.
"AOL will now not be moving forward with full deployment of the Sender ID protocol," spokesman Nicholas Graham said in a statement sent via e-mail Thursday. Instead, the Dulles, Virginia-based Internet service provider will support only the Sender Policy Framework to fight spam by verifying the source of e-mail sent to its users, he said.
