Adsense not allowed in Emails

Has G granted any exceptions to that rule?

I just received an email from a VERY reputable business. They send out weekly/monthly newsletters for the financial industry. As I'm scrolling down to find the content, there it is "Ads by Google".

Now this company should know the TOS. Especially the one posted in such plain English.

No AdWords ads or Google search box may be displayed on any domain parking websites, pop-ups, pop-unders, error, registration, or "thank you" pages, or in any email.

Has GG granted any companies the right to do this or is this company truly ignorant of the rules? Should I report them?

We could retire to the Carribean if GG would let me email the stuff ;)

There are some publishers in a beta program who are permitted to have AdSense in emails. It is not done the same way as regular AdSense is done (as a javascript).

First sighting of AdSense in email [webmasterworld.com] has a lot more details, including my analysis of exactly how AdSense in emails works.

Some HTML emails contain iframes. You could then fram an newsletter page on your site and probably not violate the TOS by including adsense in that. The page would probably double as the archive of your newsletter.

I have seen a google search box in email newsletters.

Doesn't matter what technology you use, you are not allowed to display it in an email. An ad in an iframe is still displayed in an email.

Also, I am not suprised that the emails spotted were not done with javascript. Javascript in emails is Evil[tm] and thats against google's policy..
