Is emailos.com/Simplycast a legitimate commercial mail service?  Getting some 'spam' from auto transport services that are using them for mail service and wondering if it would be wise to use the included 'unsubscribe' link.

Without checking into it very deeply, they appear to be as legitimate as any other.  The whole business is riding the edge of the anti-spam laws, IMO.  They're all basically trusting that either the list they have bought or the one provided by the client is what it purports to be - that is, people who have signed up for something.  We recipients know that isn't so, of course. 

 

How far do you want to go?  You can use the unsubscribe and see if it works first, or go directly to terse (ahem) emails to all concerned that we can find, or both.

I know it is not usually recommended, but I have been somewhat successful in the past using the 'unsubscribe' links in the email - but only if the email source is a legitimate commercial emailer.  (such as Constant Contact).  Couldn't find much online about emailos, so was hesitant to use the unsubscribe links.  Think I'll just let it taper off on its own....
