Yahoo and AOL DMARC Reject Policy Leads to Disabling of Microsoft Email Addresses on Mailing Lists

Now that Yahoo and AOL are both stating through the DMARC p=reject that any email coming from a yahoo or aol address that isn’t sent from a yahoo or aol server should be rejected (bounced), problems are cropping up for Hotmail, Outlook, Live.com and MSN users, who are finding their own email addresses being removed from mailing lists for no apparent reason. But there is a reason.

How to Unsubscribe from Priceline Mailings

Imagine our surprise to discover that such a large, established organization as Priceline has omitted a little thing like an unsubscribe link from some of their mailings. The main Federal anti-spam law, CAN-SPAM, requires that, among other things, when a business puts you on their mailing list, they must include a link allowing you to easily opt-out, in every mailing. Priceline, however, provides no unsubscribe link, at least in some of their mailings. While we are sure that this is just an oversight on Priceline’s part, it nonetheless can be very frustrating for the Priceline mailing recipient who wishes to opt out of Priceline’s mailings.
