If You Receive SPAM from MyEmma or Constant Contact

December 7th, 2009

All of us hate spam, those unsolicited emails we get from individuals or businesses who want something from us. But if you get spam from someone who is using a professional service, like MyEmma or Constant Contact, there’s something you can do about it.

Most reputable professional newsletter/email marketing companies have strong anti-spam policies in place. If you receive an email from someone who is using a professional service, go to the company’s website and look for their privacy or spam policy. I usually look in the footer of their home page.

Read MyEmma’s Emma’s privacy and permission policy, and Constant Contact’s Anti-Spam Policy.

My Emma’s policy states:

To send an email to someone using Emma, that recipient must be:

  • Someone who is a customer, member or subscriber of your business or organization,
  • Someone who has specifically asked to receive your emails by opting in or signing up in some way, or
  • Someone who has bought a product or service from you in the past 18 months.

Constant Contact defines spam at “Spam is unsolicited email also known as UCE (Unsolicited Commercial Email). By sending email to only to those who have requested to receive it, you are following accepted permission-based email guidelines.”

And both companies, have email addresses ( and that you can simply forward the offending spam to, and they’ll take care of it. I do this every time I receive spam from a professional newsletter or marketing company, because rather than just removing my own email address, I want the business owner to remove ALL of the other people that they are spamming as well.
