"We welcome America Online to the MAAWG, and look forward to work with them to help define a set of best current practices across service providers to improve deliverability", said Richard Wong, MAWWG's chairman and Openwave's General Manager.

"America Online is committed to improving our customers' messaging experience. To do so, we must cooperate to find common solutions for eliminating spam and other unwanted communications and security threats," said Carl Hutzler, Director of AntiSpam Operations at AOL.

Also, Carl Hutzler, Director of AntiSpam Operations at AOL, and Martin Deen, Manager of Messaging Engineering at Cox Communications, have been appointed to Co-Chair of the Collaboration Subcommittee. In this role, Carl and Martin will be driving the development of best current practices and code of conduct for service providers.

Founded in December of 2003, MAAWG is dedicated to solving messaging abuse on three fronts -- collaboration, technology and public policy. Members of MAAWG are working collaboratively to address and mitigate messaging abuse problems-including spam, viruses, forgery, fraud and other malicious attacks- affecting both broadband and mobile service providers and their customers.

MAAWG's next general meeting will be held in Atlanta, GA from November 1st to November 3rd, 2004.
