Certified Email

Introduced in 2006, CertifiedEmail is a scheme under which senders undergo an accreditation process. Once certified as non-spammers by Goodmail, senders’ messages arrive in users’ inboxes with images and links intact and certified as safe by a blue-ribbon icon for a small fee.

Including its original adopters AOL and Yahoo, CertifiedEmail system has been recently adopted by Comcast, Cox Communications, Time Warner Cable’s Road Runner and Verizon.

Wonder how long it will take spammers to figure out their own little blue-ribbon icon.
