>is it possible that you may have sent or requested something via email to/from this colleague over the past 5 years that may have been an autoresponder or list that they considered you giving them permission to contact you again?

Nope. We were contractors for the same client way back when, our only correspondence had been work related, and we became "friends." We had also met in person on a couple of occasions.

This was definitely a case of "Lisa likes me, she won't mind being on my list."

Which brings up another point. In the old EZezine system we used to let publishers import email addresses. We no longer allow this practice because it assumes a lot of discernment on the part of the publisher. Some of our members have gotten upset that they can no longer add addresses manually. However, most of them "get it" as to why we made this decision across the board. Now, if someone returns from a conference for example, the list owner can use an "invite friends" feature we offer to INVITE the potential subscriber to join the list.

So, Denise, maybe you didn't have to remove your email address from your biz cards, maybe you could just ask the person you're giving the card to if they use EZezine ;-)

best to all,
