Re: Major E-mail Delivery for FTC DNCR Launch

* Make sure repeated attempts to register the same e-mail address
  get throttled.  Don't make the web server a way to e-mail bomb
  people.

* Put in the e-mail a clear, short, easy to read over the phone
  link (http://www.yoursite.com/spam.html) that describes what
  action on the web site sends these e-mails, how to identify an
  e-mail as actually coming from the site, and where to report any
  sort of mailbombing (back to the first point).

* Make sure your mail servers are squeeky clean.  Forward and
  reverse match, valid MX's, they report their own name in SMTP
  headers, no "untrusted sender used -f", etc.  Valid abuse@
  for the machine name, and the parent domain are essential.
  Valid contacts for the domain and IP block are helpful.

In general this sounds like a low-risk activity, as described.
