Through relatively benign actions that were not centrally controlled,
email containing the Simmons College URL (www.simmons.edu) has gotten on
the AOL list to reject as spam. This means even individuals sending
emails with their personal URLs in their signatures can have their
emails rejected. This happened before the CAN-SPAM ACT, and we have
serious central policies on sending email to prospects. We cannot
always control the actions of eager individuals.
Has anyone else had to deal with this sort of problem? Any suggestions
how to get out of the doghouse? And since we can't guarantee that a unit
within Simmons won't send an email solicitation to a bunch of people,
one of whom thinks it is spam, how do we stay off the list?
