The Associated Press this morning is confirming reports that started making rounds late last week, that Yahoo and AOL have announced they will charge e-mail servers as much as 1¢ per message, to be able to send messages that bypass their respective spam filters.

The fees, which would range from 1/4 cent to 1 cent per e-mail, are the latest attempts by the companies to weed out unsolicited ads, commonly called spam, and identity-theft scams. In exchange for paying, e-mail senders will be guaranteed their messages won’t be filtered and will bear a seal alerting recipients they’re legitimate.
