    Hey guys,

    I have some guestions before I start with something...
    But before i do this, I want to know how to do it. Don't want to get banned or something like that!

    E-mail scraper: I have this nice piece of software. Problem is: I don't have proxy's. not yet. How many email should i scrape without proxy's???

    E-mail sender: I have software for this, but i don't have the idea that is some super tool. But same question, how many emails should i send whithout using proxy's. And can I email from 1 account or should i change to another account after, sending like 2k email?
    PS. Does anyone have some freeware that works very good? To send e-mails?

    Proxy's: Im not so informed about this.
    There are many types of proxy's that's what i know. And the one that looks most interesting is private proxy's. or am I wrong?
    So the proxy's wont get banned because you're the only one using them!

    I also have HideMyAss proxy scraper. And an Proxy checker. Can i use these proxy's? Or is this dumb?

    last question. EXAMPLE: If i get some proxy's from HMA scraper, and i have like 50 proxy's. But then 45 are invalid for somehow. And i this proxy's. Does the e-mail sender/scraper reconizes that the proxy's are invalid? or it doesn't? And just uses the proxy's. Will the e-mail be received or are the gone when you use an invalid proxy? Just explain me this last!

    Thanks in advance!!!

    If you're planning to do e-mail blasts I suggest you take the time to really get to know the CANN-SPAM Act as e-mail spam (as far as I know) is the only kind of spam where you can face serious legal repercussions.

    It depends where you are scraping from, but on many sites especially Google making too many requests from the same IP will get your IP banned at some point or another.

    If the proxy is blocked many automated softwares will try again with a next proxy in the list.

    Personally, unless I had a double opt-in list I would send zero e-mails without using a VPS + high anonymous prviate proxys or VPN and probably a MAC address changer. Then again, I might err on the overcautious paranoid side.

    Public proxies are usually okay for scraping, I would never use them to send out e-mails.

    Yeah if you're in the US and sending out spam, be careful. Its illegal and occasionally they do find individuals and press charges.

    Home Page:
    Leave a link to unsubscribe and you should be fine as long as you DO unsubscribe them (at least from that url mailing). As far as proxy's go, I am unsure. My host allows 250 emails per hour (I know, kind slow but free) - They also allow you to boost that number to 1K per hour for $9.95 per month, (you have to commit for a year) which is more than my hosting charges so that does not work for me. You could also check out turbo-smtp - They use their servers, they are all sent almost at once, it is reasonable too - 20K emails will run you about $52 U.s. - but it is done fast, your host does not suffer or even know and your emailing software should remove the undeliverables which cleans your list anyway. If you are spamming all the addresses you get your hands on, you will find that does not work so well unless you are emailing to millions. Weigh the costs and give it a try.
