The AdSense terms and conditions don’t say specifically that it’s not ok to serve AdSense ads in email. They do say that you can’t serve them into emails that have any pornographic or hate-related content.

For a discussion of the rules visit DigitalPoint’s forum.

Barry Schwarz, who advised that you “obtain approval from Google before trying this out,” explained the practice quite simply: “create static pages with the exact copy of the email. Then serve up those Google AdSense ads as if they were from the Web but in the email.”

For the record, Barry “won’t be giving this one a shot.”

Meanwhile WebMasterWorld forum members uncovered some interesting patents that Google’s filed for recently, one of them for a method of serving AdSense ads directly to email.
