DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM)
DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) lets an organization take responsibility for a message that is in transit.  The organization is a handler of the message, either as its originator or as an intermediary. Their reputation is the basis for evaluating whether to trust the message for further handling, such as delivery. Technically DKIM provides a method for validating a domain name identity that is associated with a message through cryptographic authentication.

Sender Policy Framework
The Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is an open standard specifying a technical method to prevent sender address forgery. More precisely, the current version of SPF — called SPFv1 or SPF Classic — protects the envelope sender address, which is used for the delivery of messages.

Don't Design Your Emails
In my attempt to sidestep this time-consuming process, I learned that plain emails not only save time but work better.

format=flowed: the little standard that couldnʼt quite make it
The standard itself is sort of neat, in that it applies a logical quoting construct in a backwards compatible manner to text emails. A receiver without format=flowed support sees a normal email and can reply as normal, though they may end up with embarrassing line wrap, but a format=flowed aware receiver will correctly re-wrap the further quoted sections when you reply, to ensure the lines are shorter than 78 characters but without the messy wrapping.

The format=flowed FAQ by Joe Clark
Format=flowed is a new way of displaying text. Currently, we find f=f most often in quoted text within E-mail messages. Note that distinction: f=f is at root a way of displaying text. It doesn’t alter the underlying text of your message.

Top Posting and Bottom Posting
A: Because we read from top to bottom, left to right.
Q: Why should I start my reply below the quoted text?

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?

A: The lost context.
Q: What makes top-posted replies harder to read than bottom-posted?

A: Yes.
Q: Should I trim down the quoted part of an email to which I'm replying?

Steve Dorner: Still undead
My mental image has your mental image of E‑mail as a list in Gmail, with you top-posting like a fucking moron. You don’t know what’s possible; you don’t know what you’re missing. And if you top-post, yes, you are a fucking moron. Lots of them out there.

You have no idea. What you’re using is appalling. Your habits are terrible. One of those three facts applies to Eudora users now too, since we’re stuck using the same software you are. After 23 years online, it hurts. You guys don’t feel a thing.
