Hello Sameer,

I'm sorry that now Spam Arrest is doing this to you and probably others on 
this list.  I guess you could block email from their mail servers.

I've requested them not to send advertisements to people that are in my 
authorized list of email addresses.

If you continue to get these messages from them, please let me know.

I did not realize that this would happen when I signed up for their service. 

Apart from the fact that their service is 100% effective solution to reducing 
the SPAM that I receive, the part that they SPAM others really make me feel 
bad. I hope they quicky realize this and stop misusing their pretty good 

Sorry everyone on this list in advance.
