Growing spam regulations and compliance with accepted e-mail etiquette has forced Class Creator to disallow bulk e-mail messages to classmates who have not opted-in to receive them from class sites. The blocks imposed on Class Creator’s mail server by MIPspace and others were hurting e-mail deliverability to all class sites.
Non-solicited e-mail messages are highly frowned upon. Today's spam rules require people to DOUBLE OPT-IN to receive e-mails. Double opt-in means that the person voluntarily requests to receive e-mails from the site (first opt-in – see E-mail Opt-IN: in Step 2 of Signing Up). If the primary e-mail address is valid, an e-mail verification message, sent to that address, contains a link that you must click on to confirm your wish to receive e-mail messages from this site (second opt-in).
The e-mail verification message looks something like this:
Subject: Action Required: E-mail verification for Crystal Lake Community High School Class of 1966
From: Tom Leigh <email@example.com>
