Room 403
University of Washington Campus
Subject: Delivering the mail on the modern net
Presenter: Benjamin Krueger


Once upon a time, email delivery was simple. You put a mail server online, gave it an MX record, and you were done. These days, the process of dealing with spam has increased the cost of maintaining email servers and forces us to jump through many hoops to make sure the mail gets delivered. This talk will introduce you to the finer points of the care and feeding of a modern email server.
