    So, I'm about to send 12k emails using mail chimp with a cpa dating site offer. The emails came from BHW I did not personally scrap them off the net or anything like that.

    Am I about to screw myself by doing this?

    For starters MailChimp do not like affiliate marketing. So you may want to find a different mailer.

    I tired to download IEM from here, but could not find a download that worked. If I send this email to 12k people, and 12k mark me as spam, will I get in trouble or just banned from using Mail Chimp?

    I plan on sending a first email that just says something like,
    "Hey I might be back around in a couple weeks, if we could meet up that would be fun"

    -Steve
    (so they think Im somebody they used to know)

    and then send the affiliate email to people who didnt mark me as spam, I got this idea from BHW. I really have no idea what I'm doing lol, but I feel like it cant be that easy so I', trying to hedge my bets here before I mass mail them.

    Ive been doing mailing for years... and 12k is hardly anything, were already sending nearly 2million a day... but mailchip and other similar products will ban your account, send me a PM if you want to inbox on my servers and ill take care of the complaints and hassle for you so you can inbox your CPA offers!

    if you're using the free account you can send 2k per day unless you get it approved (you won't) - the links look untrustworthy

    I just sent out a small 9k blast- using constant contact- I got banned lol
    oh well- scraped highly targeted emails(used social media extractor) for a client- ended up getting 1 paying customer for my client.

    out of the 9k sent- 2k were non deliverable- I had 700 opens and about 80 clicks- youtube video was very popular. I also recieved 200 spam complaints and got shutdown.

    Constant contact has a very tight spam policy- 1 complaint out of 1000
    the next time i do this- i will use a bulk mailer to send out a test round like you mentioned like hi this is steve or something, then I''ll export that approved list to mail chimp or constant contact.
