I've dealt with "Bulls Eye" software in the past. Personally, I hope they
burn in hell for their software. Everyone in my company received the below
email about three weeks ago.
PS. Cut here _+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_ and forward to all your friends.
UNITED STATES SENATE APPROVES ANTI-SPAM BILL
The Senate has unanimously approved an anti-spam bill.
Sen. Frank Murkowski, R-Alaska, sponsored the
legislation that dictates all unsolicited commercial email
(UCE) must contain correct header information, a valid
origination address, and valid telephone numbers.
Also each UCE must include a statement ensuring that
"removal" requests will be honored.
Penalties for failure to abide the law include fines up to
$15,000 plus court costs.
The bill was included as an amendment to S. 1618, an
"anti-slamming" measure that deals with unauthorized
switching of consumer long-distance telephone services.

> EMAIL MARKETING WORKS!!
> Bull's Eye Gold is the PREMIER email address collection tool.
> This program allows you to develop TARGETED lists of email
> addresses. Doctors, florists, MLM, biz opp,...you can collect
> anything...you are only limited by your imagination! You can
> even collect email addresses for specific states, cities, and
> even countries! All you need is your web browser and this program.
> Our software utilizes the latest in search technology called
> "spidering". By simply feeding the spider program a starting
> website it will collect for hours. The spider will go from website
> to targeted website providing you with thousands upon thousands of
> fresh TARGETED email addresses. When you are done collecting, the
> spider removes duplicates and saves the email list in a ready to
> send format. No longer is it necessary to send millions of ads to
> get a handful of responses...SEND LESS...EARN MORE!!!
> A terrific aspect of the Bull's Eye software is that there is
> no difficult set up involved and no special technical mumbo-jumbo
> to learn. All you need to know is how to search for your targeted
> market in one of the many search engines and let the spider do the
> rest! Not familiar with the search engines? No problem, we provide
> you with a list of all the top search engines. Just surf to the
> location of a search engine on your browser then search for the
> market you wish to reach...it's that easy!
> For instance if you were looking for email addresses of Doctors
> in New York all you would do is:
> 1) Do a search using your favorite search engine by typing in
> the words doctor(s) and New York
> 2) Copy the URL (one or more)...that's the stuff after the
> http://... for instance it might look like
> 3) Press the START button
> THAT's IT!!! The Bull's Eye spider will go to all the websites
> that are linked, automatically extracting the email addresses
> you want.
> The spider is passive too! That means you can let it run all
> day or all night while you are working on important things or
> just having fun on your computer. There is no need to keep a
> constant watch on it, just feed it your target market and give
> it praise when it delivers thousands of email addresses at
> the end of the day!
