ARF: Now a Proposed Standard

ARF (Abuse Reporting Format), a simple specification that enables senders of email abuse reports (like, spam complaints and feedback loop reports, for example) to easily and appropriately encapsulate those reports in a way that ensures the receiving site will have all the information it needs to properly parse the report and identify the responsible party or process.

ARF was already on track to become a standard, as multiple ISPs' feedback loops were already in ARF format. Now, that process has taken a more formal step forward, as RFC5965 was just published by the IETF: An Extensible Format for Email Feedback Reports.
