MCI says it will no longer tolerate excessive "spamming" on its Internet-access networks. A new policy prohibits sending an unsolicited mass email message to more than 25 people, providing the recipients complain.

    MCI says it will no longer tolerate excessive "spamming" on its Internet-access networks.

    The company has instituted a new policy that prohibits users from sending unsolicited mass email messages to more than 25 people, providing the recipients complain.

    Those in violation of the new order could face disconnection, according to company officials.

    As the nation's second-largest long-distance provider, MCI's decision could set a precedent for other service providers and transform what was once just a nuisance into a punishable offense.
