Combating Spam On Cell Phones

May 12 2003 - 03:11 PM ET | Unique
Japanís J-Phone mobile service provider plans to introduce a new e-mail header information viewer function as part of its efforts to combat spam. The function allows users to view e-mail header information received on a J-Phone mobile handset within the last two days on a PC. Normally an e-mail senderís address and routing information are included in an e-mail header, but when receiving an e-mail on a mobile handset, some header information is abbreviated, making it difficult to determine the source. How long before there are spam filters on board mobile devices? If you know of one, please let us know.
