BIMI enables businesses to get their logos displayed next to their email messages in compatible email apps and webapps. As part of the research for that article, I queried the top 3 million domains to see how many had adopted the standard. I found 6647 domains with a default brand indicator, but far from all meet the BIMI requirements.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/bimi-adoption.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:7acb0143-2d17-486f-be45-728e9a6f42f2 2022-04-22T01:47:00Z 2022-04-22T01:47:00Z Get your logo into inboxes with BIMI and email best practices The new BIMI email standard give companies a branding opportunity in your email inbox in exchange for adopting stricter email sender-verification standards. <p>The new Brand Indicators for Message Identification (BIMI) internet standards <em>draft</em> lets businesses display their logos next to their emails (as the sender/contact photo). The new standard is developed as a carrot to incentivize the adoption of existing email-sender best practices and verification schemes. Is a slight increase in branding prominence enough to push the email ecosystem towards adopting stricter email-sender policies?</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/bimi-intro.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:03bacb5d-26b5-4a63-89b4-40001a9d6879 2020-09-12T12:09:00Z 2020-09-12T12:09:00Z KMail account trouble I’ve always wanted to use KMail. However, I always run into problems trying to use it. Unfortunately, this time was no different than my past experiences. <p>KMail is the open-source email client that I’ve always wanted to use. However, I’ve always given up on it after a few hours or days after running into critical bugs. I gave it another shot this month, and here’s how it went.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/kmail-account-trouble.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:61a14de2-111b-452a-8b2d-9b0d95067495 2020-02-10T10:39:00Z 2020-02-10T10:39:00Z Limit the impact of a security intrusion with systemd directives Limit the impact of a security intrusion with <code translate="no">systemd</code> directives OpenSMTPD recently had a critical remote code execution vulnerability. I look at how you can limit impact with systemd-service security directives. <p>Three weeks ago, I wrote <code>systemd</code> service sandboxing and security hardening 101: an introduction to Linux security features for service processes managed by <code>systemd</code>. It proved enormously popular, so I thought I’d follow it up with a more complete example.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/systemd-opensmtpd-hardening.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:efa446a8-5a7b-4330-b76d-889cfab4e724 2020-02-05T12:25:00Z 2020-02-06T20:23:00Z Email politics, security, and why you got an empty newsletter Feb 2020 was full of email vows, both in the larger world and for the Ctrl blog newsletter.
