Anti-Spamming Policy

The Daily Star Anti-Spamming Policy

Anti-Spamming Policy

The Daily Star does not allow users to be subjected to nor tolerate their dispersal of unsolicited email (spam). Sending junk email or spam from The Daily Stars's Email is in violation of the terms and conditions by which we operate, and anyone found in violation of our policy may have their account terminated and the proper authorities contacted for possible prosecution.

Outside Spamming

Infrequently, individuals send junk email or spam by setting the 'Reply To' field in their mail software to point to a The Daily Stars's Email account. We have limited control over something like this, but let it be known that we investigate all such 'Reply to' addresses to evaluate whether the subscriber is the true sender of the spam.

Spam Support

If you've received junk email, please forward a copy of the offending mail to abuse@dailystar.com.lb for an immediate investigation. To ensure prompt handling of your complaint, please include the following:

1. The subject line should read: "Spam: (subject of offending mail)."
2. The email address of the sender in the body of your mail.
3. A copy of the offending mail, including complete headers.
