Does anyone know of a PHP implementation of hashcash?

Also, is there an estimate of what percentage of mail servers support hashcash?

HashCash is supported in spamassassin versions 3.0 and upwards. Spamassassin is probably the most popular antispam system for mail servers so it should be widely supported.


I could not find a php library for hashcash but wordpress does have hashcash support and it is written in php. See http://elliottback.com/wp/archives/2005/10/23/wordpress-hashcash-30-beta/
