ARF is the de facto standard, widely deployed, for ISP spam reporting feedback loops As for INCH, standards track or not, as much as I keep asking about, I can find very few instances of CERTs actually using the damned thing. And quite a few feeds dont appear to provide "take" in INCH format. > And then there are various one-shot things produced by many groups such as > the OECD, ASTA, FTC, NASD, etc. The only relevant one I remember that the OECD did, in the context of their spam toolkit, was an earlier version of the MAAWG sender best practices documents, developed by MAAWG jointly with OECD's business constituency BIAC. Newer versions of the sender bcp (which is bcp for legit bulk mailers) have since been published on the MAAWG website. The ASTA docs became the MAAWG best practices, more or less ..pretty much the same crowd behind both (large ISPs + email providers). And most of that lot is not reporting standards or formats, it is best practices for abuse handling / legit email marketing etc. --srs -- Suresh Ramasubramanian ([email protected])
