@AviD: It's free but it doesn't mean it's worth their time, they won't do it if they don't get any profit at all. But I agree with you otherwise.

It's fun, not necessarily an effective way to do it though. No corporation will waste money to make pranks nor support some experimental technology on such a critical infrastructure as email. But I agree that no profit -> no spam, or better less profit -> less spam. And we should continue the arms race against spammers.

Bruce also writes in his book - "Liars and Outliers" that there will always be defectors, but we should try to limit their numbers by making being a defector a less favorable option. Cutting down the impact of spam on end user will make being a spammer a bad solution. So it's not vain to fight spam, it's what we should do. You should at least give some ideas on how to fight spam right?

Done. It's not exhaustive and not very helpful if you're not running OpenBSD. But it may still give a hint on different spam fighting strategies.

comment Are Facebook, Yahoo, Google, etc. hackable?
I completely agree. For some it's being paranoid, but it's the truth. Acting consequently may or may not be worthwhile, so many people are very optimistic about the security of their systems. Though, facebook was probably created for other reasons.

Set up an encrypted partition then, chroot your SFTP user on it. That is if you are afraid of the disk being removed and analyzed or the machine to be booted by someone else. Else, then you have to share the encrypted PGP file, and do as I told you before. To revoke decryption, simple don't send them the mail, those who receive the mail will get the attachment encrypted with their own public keys, so they will be the only one to be able to read it.

If you want a central DB and revoke access, look around openssh server. Add public keys to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys and remove the keys of unwanted users by hand. They can use sftp (winscp on windows) to access the files. You can add a comment to each public key in the file to remember the user associated with it. It's easy to implement and does just what you seem to want

I might have misunderstood you! If you want to revoke access, then each should have a private/public key pair. You send them the files with the mail client and it will use their associated public keys. If someone leaves the team, just don't send him the message and he won't be able to decipher it. I think it might be different as your situation seems very specific. These are generic guide lines, adapt them to fit your needs!
