Active Spam Killer

Active Spam Killer (ASK) is a challenge/response system that encrypts information in MD5 fields within the message’s Subject: line. A sender who is not already whitelisted goes through a short confirmation process. The mail system of the recipient of the original message sends a challenge to the sender.
