AOL buys MailBlocks
Reuters.com reported today that AOL bought MailBlocks a challenge response anti spam company. I don't really understand this as it is only one (not very effective) technique. Unless AOL plans on buying a bunch. Or if they got a steal of a deal. Which is probably the case as no price was announced and MailBlocks was a small company anyway. The consolidation continues.
