The CAN SPAM act does not work. If anything, the number of spam messages me and my company receive have increased since January 1, 2004. Something needs to be done to demonstrate the willingness of the government to enforce this law. There should be a do not email registry. Not only that, I would take that a little further to include an option to have "Do Not Email Domains" for entire companies that wish to cut the amount of spam to their employees overall. Every employee should not be responsible for insuring the submission of their own email addresses. As an IT Manager, I should be able to submit the entire company's email domain name as one that should not receive spam. Lastly...there are always too many work arounds in the wording of these acts. Clear subject line labeling is not so clear under the act. A simple "name of the person sending the message" should be sufficient for subject line identification. When the wording gets too complicated, people do not bother to read it anyway.
