Consider cutting this practice.
You can learn more about your email list and show much better customer service because:
- you will receive their auto-reply messages. this bumps up your open rate and tells you things like which employees have left a company (good for B2B) and holistic seasonal or day-of-week customer trends (good for B2C)
- customers can reply to you (shocker) to ask a question or otherwise engage with you
- cuts down on spam complaints
