In Response To: Will this stop my emails from getting through? (Mark White)
Let me do a little divining here. It sounds like you already think (or are sure) you're being blocked some places. If that's the case I have a guess as to why, and I'm NOT psychic. It's likely because you're spamming. Using the example you cited (I know it's fake, but...)just SCREAMS unsolicited email.
You say it's an opt-in, but you don't specify as to the degree of caution you take when allowing an opt-in. Most of the truly legitimate sites that offer opt-in email do it thru a procedure that requires you to receive AND RESPOND to their first email to you. Is that how you operate?
Considering you're posting these questions here on a business board, it's EXTREMELY curious to me that you don't give us the domain names you're experimenting with so we might add insight. This also raises red flags and alarm bells (to me and probably some saavy others here). The fact that your email response address is hotmail DOES NOT inspire confidence either.
One last reread of your post indicates that your emails ARE GETTING thru to their recipients. Otherwise, they wouldn't be able to find them in their JUNK or SPAM folders. My ISP just discards spam (as much as they can identify) BEFORE it even hits my inbox.
Good luck on your venture if it's above board. Otherwise, rot in hell.

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
