CAN-SPAM laws and Activism

Why is it that the Outlook Junk Mailbox files away messages from Sierra Club, Mother Jones, Surfrider, and other legitimately established nonprofit organizations that manage subscribe lists.  These are all services that were opted-in to and from the content of the message, are in full compliance with CAN-SPAM laws in spirit and application.  Meanwhile, the Inbox panders to solicitors for erectile dysfunction drugs and penis enlargement technologies.  What gives?


Have you also been missing recent updates from your favorite environmental groups?  Check your SPAM folder and you might find a few surprises.


If you are spammed by an organization, then hit the Spam button. 


However, if you simply don’t want to continue to receive emails from an organization, but don’t wish to hurt their online reputation, use the unsubscribe option to ensure that you will be removed from their list in a prompt manner.


Remember to recycle your Junk Mail box now and again to see what was erroneously filed and to add the address or domain to your “Safe Sender’s List”.
