How can I avoid spam complaints about my mailing list?

First of all, be sure you're following our basic mailing list rules. These eliminate most complaints.

Beyond that, many sites on the Internet offer tips that can help explain how you can avoid having your mail labeled as "spam". We recommend MAPS (in the "Guidelines" and "Unconfirmed Mailing Lists" sections), SpamCop (in the "Mailing List Administrators" and "Advertisers" sections), and abuse.net. Tips on how to properly verify mailing list subscriptions are offered at MAPS in the "Methods of Full Verification" section.
