Debuting the week of March 22, uploading your list of clients will become easier. If you have an Admail.net Advantage account, you will be able to upload your list into your account in a variety of ways, including pipe delimited, comma delimited and tab delimited format. We recommend the pipe delimited format, because the pipe ( | ) is a very uncommon character in our language presents assures a higher degree of accuracy when our system reads your file. Comma delimited, or Comma Separated Value (CSV) is a very common Save As... option in most popular database and spreadsheet programs. As the comma is more prevalent in our language, the possibility of having data corrupted by a misplaced comma is slightly higher. Tab delimited is an older format that separates fields with tabs and is still an Export As... or Save As... option in some software. Tabs present the same possible problems as commas in data corruption.

This new bill supersedes all state laws, so if you are doing business in a state with tougher laws, things have just lightened up a bit. Also, by requiring all e-mail advertisers to include a functioning return address, a physical address for the organization, and a clearly stated opt-out, the law could help remove some of the stigma attached to e-mail marketing.
