Done that yesterday and got a call this morning this was the third time of trying. Before now it had simple been "site suggetion" or "link request"
Worth thinking about
Also females with sexy names get a better response. I have guys from Kurgystan doing links and they are far from sexy :) They are called Brigette and that.
FYI out of all the recips we have in our db info@ is by far the best mail to send it to. webmaster@ is a close second admin is also there but a lot of time admin@ is some smelly system admin who will just throw your email to spamcop because that is the sort of poeople they are.
If you let them know it is intended for someone else then they are less likely to bin it, almost like throwing your next door neighbours postal mail away because the postie put it through your letter box :)
One time we crawled a vacation rental site for mails and 50 people diligently forwarded the mails to the webmaster. He was not pleased ;)
But i see what you mean. IMO it looks as spammy as "link exchange". All people in our company are told to forward "link exchange" to the right department.
