    I have a list of about 500 million e-mail addresses, is there anyway i can monetize this, the list is not acquired thru list building. And would it be illegal to mass mail these people?

    (Pardon my bad English) :eek:

    is it targeted?
    if it's not it's kinda hard but it's a massive list so you can squeeze a decent sum out of it.

    just advertise an offer on it. best if you have your own product but if you don't use a CPA.

    legal/legal-ish/illegal depends on where you live and where the money trail goes.

    If they are all scraped and not opt-in of any sort, out of 500 million, probably 50 million will be spam traps and another 40% will be bad addresses that will be hard bounces. No matter what method you use to send them, you will get every IP you use blacklisted within minutes and nothing will inbox. Hard to make money if nobody evens sees the 500 million spam messages you are sending.

    A Targeted, Permission Marketing List (Opt-Ins) = $$$$

    A Non-Targeted, Scraped List = Trouble!
