Opt-In email is acceptable, as long as Opt-Out/Removal request are fully honored. AllHostNet has allocated tools to ensure
proper delivery of opt-in opt-out mailing lists and normal email. It is important that you use these tools accordingly. All full packages
include access to the pre-installed Mailman Mailing List Software. Large mailing lists, (those exceeding 500 subscribers) sent using the

exceeds 1,500 addresses you should contact AllHostNet requesting permission to send the mailing through the AllHostNet
servers prior to sending any messages. Sending a large mailing through mailing list software other than AllHostNet's pre-installed
software can adversely affect the flow of email. Should such a large mailing disrupt normal services or create unacceptable server loads,
