This seems like very good news in the fight against spam and seems to indicate that AOL just has way too much spam flooding their systems internally for them to figure out how to fight. One thing — I hope we all don’t start getting flooded with challenge / response emails.
AOL said it plans to add Mailblocks’ software to its existing antispam tools through a series of upgrades. The company also intends to completely redesign the Web-based e-mail systems offered on both its AOL and its Netscape sites, adopting Mailblocks’ user interface in an effort to make the sites faster and simpler to use.
