Comments:Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the proposed rules regarding the CAN-SPAM Act. I am responding on behalf of a state-chartered credit union in Virginia. We generally support the proposed rules, but do feel the processing of an opt-out request should remain at 10 days. Many third parties assist in carrying out e-mail solicitations and as a result, the extra time may be needed to effect the opt-out request. We also believe the opt-out request should be honored indefinitely until such time the consumer contacts the sender and requests otherwise. Lastly, we support a post office box or private mailbox being included in the definition of a valid physical postal address.
