Advertisements in e-mails

I would like to include some ads in the mails sent from my tell-a-friend functionality. Are there companies that allow something like this?
Or is it a bad idea?

I think most companies allow promotion of them in e-mail, as long as the list is OPT-IN and complies with the CAN-SPAM Act.

However, since tell-a-friend recipients didn't opt-in to the message, it would be a definite no-no.

If I received a message supposedly from my friend Joe to checkout domain.com and the message also contained an advert for advertiser.com, I would add advertiser.com and domain.com to my SPAM filters.

Are these your own ads or are they for third parties?

It would be third party ads, LifeinAsia changed my mind about it - I don't want to be seens as a spammer.

I just found out about a company called tafmaster, that offers a tell-a-friend service with advertisements, and they share the profits with you.

Anyone opinions on tafmaster?
