I've set my preferences on your system to not receive marketing mails. Therefore, it seems strange to get an email from your marketing manager telling me this fact, which I know very well, and telling me that I could get all sorts of marketing mails if I signed up for them.
Maybe the fact that I've asked not to get mails from your marketing department is that, oh, I don't know, I don't want them? All I want from your company is a pipe to connect my computers at home to the Internet. If I ever feel pressed for the lack of mail hosting, anti-spam measures, web hosting, or anything else, I may possibly come to your website to look for it. I know you exist – you send me a bill every month, so I'm not likely to forget. In the mean time, please naff off and let me use your services in peace.
