Praful,

Most mailing programs allow you to schedule mail up to 7 or 10 days into the future.  If your email is already in one of those batches (say 10 days from now), the systems can't remove your email from that batch.  Therefore while your email may be updated instantly and won't be added to future batches/campaigns, it may take 10 days for the existing campaigns with your email to fully run their course.

Praful,

It means that they are going to transfer your email to another server, and bug you again.  Ryan Huggins - Thousand Oaks, CA that is what has happened to us.  Just put them in the SPAM bin, and don' bother unsubscribing. A

I occasionally see that and think that it is a ploy to fill my inbox with a few more of their promos. What they don't know is I will never see them again as I block them immediately.

What they really mean to say is that their db has been updated with another live email, which will be promptly sold to others and you should notice an increase in spam over the next ten days.

It may be a way for them to be able to bill you, should their month end fall within the next week.  Had that issue in cancelling a phone number on my account and months later still fighting them on it.  It was a temporary line... of course they don't miss monthly billing on this non-used number that was cancelled online months ago!

It shouldn't, and I'm sure it does not - they are just covering themselves for the fact that it may take more than 24 hours for them to unsubscribe you - it would take seconds for them to subscribe you though - HA!  Adding you gives them business, while taking you away takes away your business, so they will drag their feet is my thought Praful Thakkar
