    Hi, I dont want to get blocked for spam, or in huge trouble by the CAN SPAM laws but I'm not selling them any sales offer, just a little information about my blog and a link to my free blog. Is that legal?

    If your blog is operated for commercial purposes (i.e. if you display advertisements on it for revenue, sell products in any of your posts, or make ANY sort of money from it) then you must follow the rules of the CAN SPAM Act.

    Here are a few of what I consider to be the most important rules defined by the CAN SPAM Act:

    1. Make it clear that the email is an advertisement.
    2. Do not mislead or deceive the recipient in any way; this includes making the email's subject an accurate description of its content.
    3. Include your address, or the address of your company, in the email. A valid physical postal address is required.
    4. Offer a way to opt out of receiving future emails from you or your company, and honor those opt-outs promptly. If a user opts out of receiving email from you, you are not allowed to sell or transfer their email address to someone else - which also prevents you from placing it into a mailing list and selling or transferring the list.
    This advice is given as is with no intention of being considered legal advice; I am not qualified to give such advice, nor will I be held accountable for any laws you may break as the result of acting upon the information I have conveyed.

    Are there any auto responders out there, where you don't have to put your address at the bottom of EVERY email?

    Am I the only one who sees a problem with this?

    I certainly don't see everybody who is selling something legitimate, putting their home address on their website...
