SPAM

Just what constitutes SPAM in an illegal sense?  What are the rules and regulations?  For a complete look at the CAN SPAM Act of 2003 see Spam Laws.  Here are the major points you must adhere to:

You must provide the ability to opt-out/unsubcribe from receiving further messages.
You must include a physical address.
You may not use deceptive subject lines – Subject lines that say one thing and the actul email content is another thing.

Keep yourself out of the Spam bucket by emailing to a permission based list with the quality content that they signed up to receive.  Ask your recipients to add you as a safe sender in their address book when they sign up to recieve your commincations.  Ask your email marketing service provider for a list of IP addresses that you may submit to Openspf.org and Microsoft’s Sender ID Framework, that tells ISP’s its ok that they are sending email on your behalf.
