B: If I've subscribed to a newsletter that is free, but supported with advertising, I would personally deem that e-mail to be considered a transactional or relationship message. C1: How about making them add our contact info to a Do Not Contact list that they have to maintain so they won't add me back in in the future? E.1.1: Only one person/company is the sender of an e-mail. E.1.2: If I opt-out from any solicitations from Dell and they solicite me again, that's a violation. If an ad suppported newsletter has an ad from Dell in the newsletter after I've opted-out from solicitations from Del, that is not a violation. E.2.1: Commercial, yes. Newsletter, no. E.2.2: I would "assume" there are other programs like this, but I don't know for sure. I would hope you'll research this further. E.2.3: If there are other types of programs like this, then they should also have to comply with the Act and then original sender should be held responsible. E.2.4: Only the original sender of the message. E.2.6: Maybe. Again, depends on whether it's commercial advertising or a newsletter. E.3.2: Not if a Commercial Mail Drop works the same as a P.O. Box by allowing an individual/company to "hide" from people. Thank you for making this available to the public.
