Although E-mail system is considered as a most important communication media, 'Spam' is flooding the Internet with many copies of the same message, in an attempt to force the message on people who would not otherwise choose to receive it. Most spam is commercial advertising, often for dubious products, get-rich-quick schemes, or quasi-legal services. Therefore advanced anti-spam techniques are required to basically reduce its transmission volume on sender mail server or MTA, etc. In this study, we propose a new sender authentication model with encryption function based on modified DomainKey with SMS for Spam mail protection. From the SMS message, we can get secret information used for verification of its real sender on e-mail message. And by distributing this secret information with SMS like out-of-band channel, we can also combine proposed modules with existing PGP scheme for secure e-mail generation and authentication steps. Proposed scheme provide enhanced authentication function and security on Spam mail protection function because it is a 'dual mode' authentication mechanism.
