Email Policies

USA2net has a strict policy against spamming. "Spam" is a slang term for unsolicited e-mail messages that are sent to users who do not request these messages. Spamming is usually intended to promote or advertise services and products. Spamming is not allowed with any USA2net account. USA2net does not tolerate users who spam via e-mail, newsgroups, etc. You may receive a warning after we receive the first complaint from a customer, or, should we determine that the incident is severe enough to warrant it, your account may be cancelled. This is a zero tolerance policy.

USA2net accounts not accessed for a period of 6 months may be subject to automatic removal.

USA2net accounts are limited to sending 100 email messages per hour. Accounts that pass this limit may be subject to automatic temporary account locks for a period of 2 hours and will be unable to send emails during suspension.

If you require more than 100 messages per hour, we recommend a mailing list provider such as YourMailingListProvider.

E-mail and Newsgroup Services

The following actions would violate the Acceptable Use Policy when utilizing e-mail and news services through the USA2net network, backbone and/or infrastructure.

  • USA2net provides an uncensored newsfeed. As such, USA2net does not control the content of the newsgroups available to you. USA2net believes that decisions about which newsgroups and messages to read are best left to its customers. Screening software is available from third parties, and it is your responsibility to use such tools if desired. USA2net is not responsible for the content of any newsgroup message, whether or not a USA2net customer posted the message.
  • If e-mail or newsgroup postings are in violation of the acceptable use policy, USA2net at times may restrict or cancel subsequent postings if they affect the service.
  • These prohibitions extend to the sending of unsolicited mass mailings or Usenet posts from another service, which in any way implicate the use of the USA2net service, USA2net equipment or any USA2net e-mail address(es).
  • Sending unsolicited commercial e-mail messages, (UCE) including, without limitation, commercial advertising and informational announcements, is explicitly prohibited. Unsolicited e-mail is defined as e-mail that is sent to another user, which has not expressed an interest in receiving the e-mail.
  • A user shall not send unsolicited bulk e-mail, (UBE) by using any form of a commercial software or hardware mechanism for the purposes of "broadcasting" large amounts of unsolicited e-mail.
  • A user shall not use another site's mail server to relay mail without the express permission of the site.
  • The sending of multiple similar articles to newsgroups, and/or the sending of any amount of unsolicited e-mail messages ('spamming') to users constitutes a violation.
  • Harassing others by 'mail-bombing' or 'news-bombing'. 'Mail-bombing' constitutes sending more than ten (10) similar mail messages to the same e-mail address. 'News bombing' constitutes sending more than 10MB of data to a newsgroup.
  • Expressly prohibited from utilizing USA2net's service, USA2net's equipment or any USA2net's e-mail address in connection with the sending of the same or substantially similar unsolicited e-mail message, whether commercial or not, to a large number of recipients. This prohibition extends to the sending of unsolicited mass mailings from another service, which in any way implicates the use of USA2net's service, USA2net's equipment or any USA2net's e-mail address(es).
  • The cross posting of advertisements for products, items, or services which exceeds the commonly held thresholds and guidelines of the USENET community, will not be tolerated. Article posts should be on-topic to the particular newsgroup charter. Articles that disrupt any newsgroup with frivolous, excessively vulgar or repetitious postings are not allowed.
