    I've had this email address for almost 2 years, it is my work email and I've sent tons of fully legit email pertaining to real estate (the field that I'm in). I've never "spammed" with it before. So I've developed a product for real estate agents and I have a good list of extremely targeted emails. How many emails could I send a day without getting spamboxed and do I need to change up the email slightly or can I just BCC 100 of them at a time or something?

    This is probably spam in the technical sense but it is highly targeted and will more than likely be of serious interest to the receipients. I don't need to send 1000's a day, I harvested the list myself and it contains about 10k emails, I did it mostly by hand combined with some tools I made... took a really long time to gather but like I said, it's a very targeted list.

    Would I be ok sending 100 of the same emails a day? Could I just send it to myself and BCC to the other 100?

    I am aware that google states something about 500/day and 100/day with pop, but I need "the real deal" will they spam/ghost/block/etc.. me for sending 100 of the same emails in a day?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    I heard from experienced e-mail marketer that,with gmail you can send 500 mails daily.
    Max. 100 per hour with 36 seconds pause between sent mails.

    don't need to change up the text or put in "poetry" at the bottom of each email or anything like that? What do you think about the BCC idea? or should I send them all out individually? Thanks for your reply!

    On another topic, is there any way to track if somebody views the email by putting a 1x1 transparent image or something similar? I'm very fluent in PHP so if that would work I can write a script to track the hits if that's even possible....

    Its not advisable to use Gmail or other free mail providers for mass mailing. What you need at this time is some real email marketing tool. I haven't tried it myself, but many of our clients are using services like MailChimp and iContact to meet mass mailing needs. You may wish to try considering any such service, and yeah, you can always start a free trial and upgrade or discontinue as and when needed.

    In September, I had sent about 875 over 3 days through Thunderbird Mailmerge. Pause in between emails was set to 15 seconds. Except for Y! emails addresses all went out smoothly. Most were also read. It was not business related, we just send those to random people who we had scraped previously on other niche. That was for testing purpose for another campaign that's we are aiming to begin soon.

    Sounds cool, I'll try it out, do you mean that a lot of the yahoo email addresses got spamboxed?

    IAMFARAZM - I am aware of mailchimp/constant contact/icontact, etc.. but is 100 emails a day considered mass marketing? Also, I don't understand how they can tell if the email list is "opt-in" or not. How many report as spams does it take to get you blocked? And if they block you, can you just set up another account and send out the next blast??

    Thanks for all the help guys

    I guess 100 emails a day is not mass mailing, but it will, when you go higher like 200-300 a day. Regarding opt-in list, i guess providers like Gmail have no way of knowing that. And sorry, i have no idea about your other question either. that's how may people need to report you to get you blocked. As far as i know, they put some kinda restriction on the no# of emails, and if you reach that thresh hold, they put an auto ban on you. for sure you can set up a new email address, but if you decide to do this with your personal email, then you need to be a bit more cautious.
