    Hi everyone. I'm sure this is a dumb question so please go easy on me. I'm in the midst of setting up and configuring ScrapeBox, SER, etc. I see these fields for email accounts. For example, in setting up SEREngines, this is what they instruct:

    Some Do's and Don'ts
    1. Always check your emails and proxies are working before starting
    2. Don't stop and start the project
    3. Always use fresh email accounts, don't reuse them from other projects

    Email Accounts

    We advise using a mixture of email providers such as Hotmail/Outlook, NokiaMail and Yahoo. The
    reason for this is some Web 2.0s don't accept Hotmail/Outlook but will accept another email
    provider. For maximum success rate we advise using all the mentioned emails within the same
    project.

    My question is, am I using a legit email account/s to setup these various pieces of software? Like accounts from my domain? Or am I creating and using temporary/throwaway email accounts....yahoo, hotmail, etc? I'm sure the reason this isn't covered in the user guides is because they assume the purchaser would already know the answer but, you'll have to grade me on a curve. ;) Thanks in advance for the help!

    P.S. - All of my efforts are geared towards my money site. I am not an affiliate marketer. I am new at using these software programs but, due to an obvious steep learning curve, am taking things very slowly. I'm sure I will be asking more stupid questions very soon.

    Bit of an old thread but since there isn't an answer Ill answer.

    For Scrapebox - use fake emails

    For GSA SER - Use legitimate real emails that you can actually log into.

    No, don't use email accounts from your domains. Create free email accounts and use those, just make sure you keep the login details as SER needs to access them as well

    I wouldn't bother "creating accounts." Just use the guys that have their links in the GSA SER software for bulk email accounts. And I'm not sure why the poster above said to use real emails for GSA. Only reason to do that would be if you're verifying by hand, and ain't nobody got time for that shit.

    I'd rather use real emails for all tools. It doesn't take long to create them - just a few minutes.

    Real emails equal a email account that actually exists and can be checked, even if it forwards to another account.

    Fake email equals a email that can't receive mail and is just randomly generated, like with scrapeboxes email generation tool. Aka

    ljdfldkjlsualrudslurslu@google.com

    Thats clearly fake.


    I said use real emails because you have to be able to login and get the verification email. I think you just misunderstood, because you said to just buy emails from the guys that SER link to and those emails you buy ARE real emails. So you said to use real emails too. I buy from those folks, I don't create them or hand check them.

    ^^ Yes, totally right. Took it for granted the OP would understand the diff. Was just thrown off when you said "create accounts," which is insanely time consuming when one can just buy them.
