The Tuesday, Sept 12th meeting of the Rocky Mountain Internet Users Group (RMIUG) will be a panel discussion called "SPAMfest 2000 - All About Unsolicited Email."

Charles Oriez (coriez@oriez.org), a leading anti-Spam expert, will give us some background on the Spam issue, cover applicable laws dealing with Spam, and give tips for users, ISP's and list owners in preventing and fighting Spam. He will also be presenting his popular section on "Top Five Spammer lies."

Geoff Mulligan (geoff@mulligan.com), author of the book, Removing the Spam : Email Processing and Filtering (Addison-Wesley Networking Basics Series) will be speaking from the system administrator's perspective on mail-filtering tools and techniques to keep your system and users as spam-free as possible. Geoff is chief executive officer and founder of QVtech which provides email protection software for businesses.

Steve Senator (sts@senator.org), who helps maintain the Public DNS (Domain Name Service) service through Granite Canyon, will be speaking on how Spam affects the wider Internet community and infrastructure and what is being done to combat it.

As always, plenty of time will be allocated for interactive Q&A, so bring plenty of questions and be ready for an interactive discussion filled with lively debate, argumentation, & new ideas.

The meeting is Tuesday, Sept 12th from 7:00 - 9:00 pm (with optional 6:30 pm start for refreshments and informal networking). The meeting will be held at The National Center for Atmospheric Research at 1850 Table Mesa Drive in Boulder, which is located on the west end of Table Mesa Drive, up the hill, right under the Flatirons. For door-to-door driving direction, go to MapQuest (http://www.mapquest.com/ ), click on Driving Directions, enter your starting address, NCAR's address, and voila! Park in the NCAR lot, go in the main door, and ask the guard to point you to meeting, which is held in the main auditorium, right off the lobby. The meeting is free and open to the public, but we may pass the hat to help defray expenses.

Our meeting location seats about 120 people. That is usually enough room to accommodate all attendees, but it's impossible for us to predict how many people will show up for any given meeting. Seating is always on a first-come, first serve basis, and in the event of more attendees than seats, we won't be able to admit additional people into the auditorium after all seats are filled.

RMIUG appreciates the ongoing support from XOR Network Engineering ( http://www.xor.com ) for administration of RMIUG's electronic discussion lists & web site. Thanks also to Interliant ( http://www.interliant.com ) for sponsorship of refreshments for our group.

Consultants and companies are invited to bring Internet-related Product information, brochures, and business cards which will be displayed on an information table.
