If you use your OptinZip Autoresponder account to send e-mail to people who haven't asked for it, then you are spamming, and your OptinZip account will be shut down.

Can I import a list of purchased leads?

Importing or in any way using purchased leads with an OptinZip account is strictly prohibited. If you paid money or in any way purchased a group of pre-existing leads these may not be used with OptinZip. These leads did not specifically request information from you and thus emailing them would be considered spam.

Can I advertise my OptinZip e-mail address on an FFA site?

Many businesses like to advertise their web site URLs through FFA (Free For All) links sites. However, submitting your OptinZip e-mail address with your URL is spamming!

FFA sites post only your web site address, not your e-mail address. They only request your e-mail address in order to e-mail you personally. If you submit your OptinZip e-mail address, when an FFA site owner sends you his initial welcome e-mail, he will be added to your OptinZip autoresponder as a lead. He will subsequently receive e-mail from you through the OptinZip Autoresponse system. However, he never asked to be added to your list of leads or to receive e-mail from you. This means that any e-mail your OptinZip Autoresponder sends to him is spam.

What are some common spamming mistakes that OptinZip customers make?

Using OptinZip accounts to send spam is both prohibited in the OptinZip User Agreement, and illegal. OptinZip's no-spam policy is strictly enforced. If you use your OptinZip Autoresponder account to send e-mail to people who haven't asked for it, then you are spamming, and your OptinZip account will be shut down.

Can I post ads to newsgroups?

Posting the same message to numerous newsgroups, or posting off topic messages to any newsgroup is spamming. You may not post your OptinZip ad to newsgroups unless that ad is specifically on-topic, as determined by OptinZip.

OptinZip's no-spam policy is strictly enforced. If you send or post spam related to your OptinZip account, then that account will be terminated
