An attempt by legislators in different countries to prevent the deluge of spam into Inboxes was to be expected. The spam itself had already spawned the spam Email Database filter industry, which has "flourished" this year. I put flourished in "" because flourishing gives the impression of health. Their balance sheets and profit and loss figures may be flourishing, I don't know, but Email Database the email industry is not. Spam filters were set up to prevent spam, not to kill perfectly genuine and good emails, from friends, lovers, publishers you have requested a newsletter from, or anybody else who is not "spamming" you.
Some recent figures suggest a significant proportion of Email Database valid emails are not reaching their destination. Is that good? Is that what the legislation intended? No, it is it not. People use filters in good faith, without, in most cases, having any idea how they work. They Email Database may be blissfully unaware that, in some cases, good email will not reach them. How much does that damage online business? How many business relationships are damaged by failure to respond to an email that was never received? How many personal relationships are damaged in the same way?
Nobody knows. But if, for example, a marriage is on the Email Database rocks, one such incident could be the straw that broke the camel's back. Internet marketers in particular have been covering the subject an enormous amount in the past year. Some are even saying Email Database that email is dying. Well, dying is surely an exaggeration. Maybe those marketers want others to give up so they have the field to themselves. However, it is increasingly difficult for internet marketers to get their message, even if requested, to the recipient. They comply, in most cases, with the legislation, but the self appointed Spam Police have their own ideas of what email people should receive.
