Subject Newbie question; how to start a project
Date Tue, 29 Mar 2005 14:07:09 GMT
Hi All,

I'm not sure this is the correct place for asking this question, but I've got 
to start somewhere.

For a few years I'm walking around with ideas to create a new email standard, 
one that would make spam virtually impossible.

The idea is very simple, and technically it's not a real problem to build it. 
I could build the software for it, but the basis is more a replacement for 
the current SMTP standard, rather than just some new software.

What's required for something like that, is large support in the community, 
hence my mail here :-)

I don't mind sharing my idea with others, but I don't wanna give any clues 
right now. It must be something open, and if the idea is indeed as good as I 
think it is (I might be overlooking something...), I don't want anyone to get 
it patented, so that's why I'm careful at this point; there's no commercial 
meaning behind it from my side, and it should stay that way.

Suggestions anyone? If this mailinglist is not the right place for this, 
pointers are welcome.
