Dear Mr Plaistowe
Thank you for your reply. There are several points to answer and I will come back to you on these individually at some point.
During your call to our office you had threatened to 'blacklist' our domain. You then go on to say in your latest email that you had not told anyone to block our account. The subsequent content of your dialogue with users at SPAM-L@XXXXXXXXXXXX tells a different story.
I am compiling a complete set of all correspondence for our solicitors, which includes the content of your initial dialogue with SPAM-L, where you state that 'A new Spam company has set up just down the road from me' etc. etc.
Our solicitors have advised that should we wish to instigate action against you for liable and deformation of our businesses character and the potential for your actions to have damaged our business or restricted our trade, we should have strong grounds to do so.
Again, I reiterate the point, we are not a 'spam company'. Our broadcasts although bulk mailed, are 'targeted' not indiscriminately sent and are fully compliant with current EU directives and legislation, which as a responsible marketing company we are duty bound to follow. We use the services of a professional e-marketing company to delivery our mail and we pay for this service - our message delivery is not processed for free.
I ask you again to retract your allegation. This includes a retraction posted to the SPAM-L network. If on this occasion you still insist that our company is in the business of sending spam, I will have no choice other than instructing our solicitors to start proceedings against you.
All the best
Welcome to the AHBL Mark! Hope you enjoy your extended stay.
