Sender Policy Framework

Council Election/2007-01

In late 2004, the community of the SPF Project decided that a more organized, cohesive approach would be needed in order to fight e-mail identity forgery and other e-mail abuse. Thus, the SPF Council body was created and elected in December 2004. For the first time, five council members were chosen to lead the project.

In 2007, two years after the council's formation, the SPF Project went on to elect its third council. Again, five council members lead the project over twelve months to solidify the SPF standard and continue the battle against e-mail sender forgery according to the visions of the project's community.
