Verbal permission is not confirmed opt in. To have confirmed opt in,
your customer needs to send a confirmation e-mail to each address
someone gives her. Then if the owner of the address doesn't reply to the
confirmation, she should never ever send her newsletter to those addresses.
See http://mail-abuse.net/manage.html for more information on proper
confirmed opt in mailing list management.
