Prepares Marketers for Transition to Updated Protocol

SAN FRANCISCO, February 7, 2011 - As the world prepares to transition to IPv6, what do legitimate senders
and marketers need to know about the updated protocol and how it will affect
their operations? The Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group (MAAWG) is helping
senders find the answers to these questions with a free video "IPv6 for
Senders" now available on the MAAWG website.

While some organizations are already deploying IPv6, most legitimate
senders and marketers have not yet made the transition. The MAAWG video
demystifies Version 6 for senders who need to understand how the impending
industry switch from IPv4 will impact their mailings.

The presentation by Internet security and IPv6 expert Joe St Sauver,
Ph.D., a MAAWG senior technical advisor and frequent industry speaker,
provides a basic primer to help marketers understand how and when to
implement IPv6 email. The approximately hour-long course is available in 20-
to 25-minute video segments, including an introduction to basic concepts, an
examination of the drivers and myths affecting IPv6 adoption, and a review of
technology issues.

Industry professionals can watch the videos at or access them from
the Activities menu on the MAAWG site at The course was
originally presented in October 2010 at the organization's Washington, D.C.
general meeting.

"Assisting marketers and volume senders in understanding how and when to
make a timely and smooth transition to IPv6 will help keep legitimate email
flowing with fewer disruptions as the industry moves to the new protocol. Joe
St Sauver
is a recognized leader in this field and active in a number of
Internet organizations. We are fortunate to be able to share his experience
on this subject with senders," said MAAWG Chairman Michael O'Reirdan.

This is the second video in the MAAWG Training Series that the
organization has made available to the industry. A detailed course on DKIM
implementation is also available in four parts on the MAAWG site.
