Sending newsletter through RoadRunner

They don't like it, what can I do?

I sent a newsletter for an ecom Web site to about 2400 people who have made purchases in the past. I sent the newsletter through my business email account (not RoadRunner), but did so through my RoadRunner connection. Someone complained, and I got a warning that sending commercial email is not allowed.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can send this newsletter in the future without risking the loss of my RR account?

Welcome Hutchins.

I think you have us stumped. Usually we get to questions *much* faster than this. I'll see if I can't find someone to help.

You could use a service that sends the e-mails for you, or use a anonymous proxy server to hide your RR IP.

You may look into a mailing list type program(like mailman) that's hosted by your web provider.

This'll also give you the added bonus of people being able to subscribe/unsubscribe via email or a webpage.

Thanks for the responses! What I am going to try is sending the email from the Web site server. My site uses ColdFusion, so I think I can setup an Access database and write a template that generates email automatically. I hope it works.
