I've talked with the folks at the White House regarding the
things they do to detect threats by email, etc.... I know that we
(AOL) are very interested in effectively dealing with spam, junkmail,
mailbombs, etc... (from the persepctive of our users either
generating or receiving this kind of stuff), and I'm sure at least
our three groups can get together for some extended discussions. I'm
certainly open to listening to anyone else who's interested in
participating in that kind of discussion.
