    I have accidently discovered a way to send emails to every student at my university, these emails are checked regularly. Even more I can send emails to different departments e.g. [email protected] , [email protected] or to everyone at once with [email protected] (Obviously these are not actual emails).

    Now my question is:

    How do I monetize it? What should I promote? I don't think students would buy clickbank offers, so I'm wondering what is the best?

    I wish I could promote alcohol deals in my city, but this isn't an option :(, I could sell this list to services in my town, but it's illegal

    Cheers

    I wouldn't toy with that. You could find yourself in trouble by spamming an institution such as a university, where you are not authorized to use for commercial purposes.

    I'm assuming it's not legal to send emails to anyone who didn't subscribe via some kind of form?

    Bingo. The individuals who own the e-mails did not opt-in to receive any mail from you, so it would definitley be considered spam and unsolicited.

    always have conversation first while sending , to avoid any trouble.
