DMI Web Hosting has a zero
tolerance policy regarding unsolicited commercial email (UCE)
and unsolicited bulk email (UBE) also known as "spam".
The definition of spam:
An electronic message is "spam" IF: (1) the recipient's
personal identity and context are irrelevant because the
message is equally applicable to many other potential
recipients; AND (2) the recipient has not verifiably granted
deliberate, explicit, and still-revocable permission for it
to be sent; AND (3) the transmission and reception of the
message appears to the recipient to give a disproportionate
benefit to the sender.
You will be cited with "UCE/UBE Abuse" if you send any email
to persons who have not specifically asked to receive email
from you. The sending origin of such email is irrelevant.
Upon confirmation of abuse, any DMI Web Hosting customer
engaging in this practice will have their service suspended.
Not only does spam place a strain on the server that can
negatively effect that server's uptime record and
performance record, you subject that server to the
possibility of being blacklisted.
If your site will be sending mailings out to subscribers,
this is a checklist of what you are required to do:
The number of messages allowed to be sent per hour, per domain, is 350
You must not try to hide, forge or misrepresent the sender
of the e-mail and sending site of the e-mail.
Bulk mailings must specifically state how the persons'
e-mail addresses were obtained and must indicate the
frequency of the mailing.
Bulk mailings should contain simple and obvious unsubscribe
mechanisms. We recommend that this be in the form of a
working link to a one-click unsubscribe system; however, a
valid "reply to:" address may be used instead.
All subscription based e-mail must have valid,
non-electronic, contact information for the sending
organization in the text of each e-mail including either a
phone number or physical mailing address.
All bulk e-mail must be solicited, meaning that the sender
has an existing and provable relationship with the e-mail
recipient and the recipient has not requested not to receive
future mailings from the sender. Documentation of the
relationship between the sender and the recipient must be
made available to AOL upon request.

logged against your site in one day, the site will be
