Check out this email I get about, oh, once a day (edited to take out the person’s name who sent it):
The problem with this is that you look like a spammer when you send this.
I know, I know, you didn’t do it on purpose.
What can you do about it?
- Be careful what networks you sign up for. I know people how sign up for every new network that comes around, and I regularly get emails from them that I just delete. Maybe even legitimate emails… but they send so much noise, I don’t even pay attention to emails from them. You don’t want people to think of your emails like this, do you?
- If you sign up for a new thing, don’t do anything that might send emails to your address book (including uploading your address book).
I think many people do this by mistake, but it makes email from you look like spam… and you don’t want that – be careful 🙂
