(don't) reply to this email

Dain Saxon (Digital Producer) – August 28, 2008

Click Here to Unsubscribe? One of the strengths of email is that it is a medium that lends itself to both one way and two way communication.

Why is it then that so many companies display something similar to the following message in their email newsletters?

"Please do not respond to this email. If you would like to Contact Us, please click here for details."

The above is an example from a Centrebet (insert link) email that I receive regularly. Curiously if I click on the "click here for details" link, I get taken to a page with a list of email addresses - why not just let me hit reply?
Business is about relationships - with your customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders.
Anything that can help deepen this relationship is a GOOD thing.....
