ZoEmail Locks Out Spam
This e-mail service actually works effectively against spam.ZoEmail is a Web-based e-mail service that makes two ambitious promises: Youll never get spam, and youll never miss valid mail. It accomplishes this feat using a mature and thorough implementation of the disposable e-mail address (DEA) concept. The service offers just about everything youd expect in a stand-alone e-mail client: address book, spell-checking, user-defined folders, message rules, and even an option to insert foreign characters. But unlike other e-mail clients, ZoEmail really does keep spam out. Where an ordinary e-mail address consists of a name and a domain, a ZoEmail address is built from a name, a key, and a domain. Each one of your correspondents automatically gets a different key, which can be generated at random or entered manually. Your friend might send messages to email@example.com, while your spouse might message you at yourname.darling @zoemail.net. If you ever get unwanted mail, the key that was used reveals exactly where it came from. Key-management features let you close the tainted key or lock it so that it receives messages only from the original correspondent.
You can also create easy-to-remember general-purpose keys for distribution. For example, before a conference, make the conference name into a key and give out the keyed e-mail address. Every contact from that conference will initially arrive through that key.
