I was in the process of sending out some emails to a bunch of Australian, Canadian, UK & US companies about a new service I am offering. I know this is a well known practice with offliners so I wanted to get your opinion on this.
The services I am offering are truthful and legit and not some link to an affiliate or CPA offer. But after sending out a few of these, I received an automated response from an Australian company saying the following:
"Subject:Considered UNSOLICITED BULK EMAIL, apparently from you".
A message from <firstname.lastname@example.org> to: -> so and so was considered unsolicited bulk e-mail (UBE). Our internal reference code for your message is Ref#.From what I read US Can-Spam act considers (supposedly) spam emails to be acceptable provided that the service offered is truthful and genuine. I know the Aussie rules are somewhat different. Am I treading on dangerous waters and if so which Countries deem such email to be unacceptable? I have a list of German, French, Spanish and Japanese emails as well for which I would like to send an email letting them know about my new service. And no, none of these emails were obtained through a double opt-in. They were all scraped.
Thanks in advance
