Education: the ultimate weapon against SPAM

Educating Internet users would help a lot in the battle against SPAM.
Education is also useful for a lot of other activities !

As long as people will believe that someone will give them graciously millions of dollars against some miscellaneous cost or they will live better and longer using some drugs that could kill them, spammer will have many good days ahead for themselves !

pyzmail : a high level mail library for Python

pyzmail is a high level mail library for Python. It provides functions and classes that help to read, compose and send emails. pyzmail exists because their is no reasons that handling mails with Python would be more difficult than with popular mail clients like Outlook or Thunderbird. pyzmail hide the difficulties of the MIME structure and MIME encoding/decoding. It also hide the problem of the internationalized header encoding/decoding.

The struggle against SPAM is a political problem more than a technical one

I thing SPAM is more a political problem than a technical one !
A lot of smart technical solutions exist for a long time now but SPAM remains a problem.
Main mail service providers like Google and Hotmail could choose and impose new rules in mail exchange to the community, by rejecting mails from servers not following them. Then I thing SPAM would be reduced to the minimum.

My solution below is deliberately superficial because a real solution would require long debate of mail gurus to avoid any weakness. I'm only one and maybe not a guru :-)
