Please know that she is not buying a list of potential customers. I would certainly want no part in a spamming operation.
Given the quality of 99% of those here on the Fool, good intentions is my default assumption! :-)
My post was intended more to spare you inadvertently causing yourself grief than any other reason.

ShelbyBoy has some good real-world observations, too. Assume that if there is a way to break something, ignore it or find another way - someone will find/do it.
If you are squeaky clean, dot your i's, cross your t's (and save those confirmations, including the headers!), you will be fine - even if someone reports your message as spam in a moment of brain death.

To stress it one more time, all subscriptions must be confirmed - in a secure manner that can't be duplicated by anyone other than the confirming party! - before that address can be considered to have opted in. This is the cornerstone upon which good list management is built - and it's only the beginning...

Again, good luck and please report back as to how it goes!
Would that more small listers would be as concerned with doing the Right Thing (care to try to impart this concern to a few more groups, say Girl Scout Troop leaders, church groups, elementary/high school teachers, union rep's, as well as my Aunt Edna? Please? ;)
