Hi guys,

This anti-spam law passed in 2007 is somewhat confusing.

One of the exceptions include "inferred permission".  It means if the client you are contacting has their e-mail address posted on a website without any comment in regards to "no unsolicited e-mails", and you think what you are e-mailing them is related to their business, then it's OK?

Quite confusing really, would like some clarification in regards to the "inferred permission".

My understanding is inferred permission is gained from having done business or had contact with them in the past.

Appropriately I got one of these emails today from a company who had tried to sell us software in the past. I didnt want their spam, but as we had invited them for discussions around our software, I deemed this as having inferred permission.

However they had no opt out in their email so I gave them a bit of a blast for that and asked to be removed.




For billions of years since the outset of time, every single one of your ancestors survived, every single person on your Mum and Dads side, successfully looked after and passed onto you life.  What are the chances of that like?

Hi Balchy,

Thanks for your explanation. Their video at the DIA is not all that clear.
