    As long it is unsolicited, it is counted as spam.

    If mails are autorized by owners by mailing list form or similar. If not you can simply send a mail to ask autorizzation to receive commercial mail (grey hat because you can't contact in any way this mails). If you don't do this is 100% illegal.

    you posted in wrong section. White Hat SEO is not for Email Marketing Discussion.

    Most of the time email marketing count as a spam, but it depends on Marketer, he is promoting legit offer or not.
    Email marketing is a is a way that you can promote anything successfully.

    If emails sends to the subscribers want to receive the email by you then it is not spam. Emails send to the people without their permission is definitely called spam activity.

    If the email recipients had previously opted-in to receive further information or offers from you or your business through a lead capture or landing page, then commercial email marketing can be fine in that case. Keep in mind to make sure you are not violating any do not contact registry lists and you promptly address unsubscribe requests.

    We can't conclude if it is spam or not. It depends on the content, the way you deliver the message. But most often they are considered as spam. Imo though the open rate increases, the success rate is low.
