ldejager Posted September 11, 2006 Share Posted September 11, 2006 Hi there, I am having difficulties with a spesific user who sends out bulk email to market his website. I have had two reports from spamcop regarding this spamvertised website and have contacted the client on both occations regarding this. His argument is that he does not send it through our servers and he did add the unsubscribe email address as requested before. On the second occation we questioned his methods of obtaining email addresses (He blatantly admitted he uses email harvesting software for this purpose), now he claims he bought the email addresses. Below is what he adds to each outgoing message. Can someone please provide general information regarding the buying of email addresses? Is it legal? What are the requirements for sending out legit marketing email? This information would be used to take appropiate action against offending user and for future refernce. ---<snip>--- To never receive any more jokes ever again click: unsubscribe[at]domain.com IMPORTANT: please note that we have purchased this email address - our aim is not to sell anything, spam or annoy, but simply tell people about our site and put a smile on their face. By unsubscribing we will respect your privacy and remove your address. Thank you. ---</snip>--- Many thanks, Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
