First define "spam." Spam is any unsolicited email whether commercial or non-commercial. You may or may not agree but that is my definition based on my research recently. A good definition is found here http://www.monkeys.com/spam-defined/
Absolutely no spam can be sent through Dollar Hosting servers or network. Absolutely no site can be hosted on Dollar Hosting servers or network that is advertised in spam. If you run any kind of newsletter or any other kind of bulk email service then you must have some evidence that people actually signed up to receive such email. Any and all spam complaints will be investigated thoroughly to determine if the complaint is legitimate. We must have proof from the one reporting the spam. Obvious spam evidence will result in immediate account suspension. Other users will be given 2 days notice to either stop the spamming or come up with evidence to prove that the one reporting the spam actually did sign up to receive it or to find another host.
If you collect email addresses for bulk email the best proof is to collect as much information as possible about the person including the date and time and ip address at the time of sign up. It would be good to have their real name and address too. The more personal information you have about somebody then the better it is because it is unlikely that a spammer would have all that information. Be aware too that there are addresses out there that are planted for spammers to capture to be used in spam. These addresses are planted so that the receiver knows that the email is spam because those addresses are not used for any other purpose. So if you use software to scan newsgroups or websites to collect email addresses then you will be caught. Please do not do this. You also have to be careful about buying email lists from other companies. You need to verify that these addresses are legitimate and the people do want to receive what you are sending them.
