Whenever we come across a hot new idea, product or service that we think can have a profound impact on your business - we publish a special edition of our newsletter.
If you publish an online newsletter or e-zine, or if you use email to keep in regular contact with your family business customers, this special edition of the newsletter has some fantastic information on a new service.
We really endorse and approve of this tool, which helps deal with spam at its source - before it is sent, and which helps those of us who don't want to be involved with spam in any way.
The spam check service is built right in to the Site Build It! product that we use and recommend for small business eCommerce. However, you can use it without even acquiring Site Build It! - just follow the instructions included below.

PS Back in our April 7, 2002 Issue 002, we showed you Six Major Opportunities for Starting Business Online and how local businesses should Use the Web to Increase Your Presence and Exposure Locally.
Spam is a bigger and bigger problem nowadays. Recently Ralph Wilson, Paul Myers, and other Net marketing gurus have written about the problems that spam is causing honest, hard working Net marketers.
Actually, while spam is the fundamental root of our problems, the anti-spam measures that large ISPs and important free e-mail hosts (like Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail) undertake are what hurts legitimate Net marketers.
Much like tuna nets catch dolphins by mistake, their spam filters catch us. So the SiteSell SpamCheck Tool is a quick way for honest marketers to make sure that their e-mails are less likely to be considered spam by ISPs, by Yahoo! Mail and Hotmail (which tosses you into their Junk folders) and even by individual filters set up by an ever-growing number of recipients around the world.
Here's how it works...
STEP 1: Copy-and-paste your subject, but start your subject with the word "TEST" (without the quotes, in UPPER CASE) so that we know this is a test e-mail. (If the subject does NOT start with TEST, we'll assume it's REAL spam and delete it).
Here's a sample subject...
TESTFlower-Lovers Ezine #007: Peonies for the Yukon
STEP 2: Copy-and-paste the rest of your e-zine and simply send it, exactly the way you would send it to your recipient, to...
You'll get a report back (in seconds, perhaps a few minutes if volume is heavy) telling you how good or bad your e-mail is, from a spam-detector's point of view. You will receive a full, free report of all corrections that you should make to your zine, in order to stay out of the junk folders. It does NOT, of course, actually comment on WHAT you write -- first, it's not that smart. And second, the actual content is YOUR business! ;-)
And remember, this SpamChecker is just one feature of the E-zine MailOut tool, which itself is merely one part of the entire system of Site Build It! tools... guaranteed to make any small business succeed online... in a tenth of the time ... at a tenth of price.

Take the test - it's free. See for yourself...
