"Email Crush!"

Written by A. T. Rendon

Analysts predict thatrepparttar volume of email onrepparttar 109615 Internet, most of it junk, will grow another 50 percent in 2002.

That is a lot of email!

With estimates thatrepparttar 109616 number of Internet users is nearingrepparttar 109617 1 billion mark,repparttar 109618 amount of email floating aroundrepparttar 109619 Internet is only going to increase and problems will get worse.

Anyone online can tell you that a huge part ofrepparttar 109620 problem is SPAM, orrepparttar 109621 Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE).

The subject has been beaten like a dead horse and no viable solution is in sight. No, not even federal legislation can stop or fix this problem adequately.

The person or person(s) that do findrepparttar 109622 solution will go down as genuine heroes in Internet history.

Ironically, there is another side to this entire problem that has yet to be addressed. The irony is that it comes to us from established, legal sources, notrepparttar 109623 spammers.

We have all received their email.

The From: field says, "Mail Delivery System". The Subject: field says, "Mail Delivery Failed". Andrepparttar 109624 Body: ofrepparttar 109625 email begins with, "This message was created automatically by mail delivery software (Exim)."

This is especially true if you have a mailing list.

I send out email to my list of over 7100, 100% OPT-IN subscribers twice each week and it causes me to be bombarded with hundreds of emails daily!

It starts with an email message that states, "WARNING", your message could not be delivered but you need do nothing.

Then they follow up that message withrepparttar 109626 "Mail Delivery Failed",repparttar 109627 vast majority of those emails simply tell me thatrepparttar 109628 intended recipient has a "Full Mail Box".

Finally, I receive another email letting me know that they have still been unable to deliver my email and that it is being deleted from their list.

For each email I send out that does not make it to where it is intended, I get back at least three emails.

My experience has been that at least 5% to 10% of every mailing I send out will come back to me as "Not Delivered".

That means that each time I send out my list of over 7100 subscribers, I get back at least 2100 "Message Not Delivered" emails.

Sending out my list twice weekly means I generate over 4200 email replies that I did not request and I do not need nor want!
