    Don't do it until you have spent a lot of time in the Email Marketing section. Most likely 30% of those emails are bad and a few are most likely spamtraps.

    Not only will you kill your server, but you run the risk of having your site banned and taken down.

    Email Marketing is getting very difficult and deserves a lot of caution. It can be successful but its not something to rush into.

    Don't be too quick to judge. We don't even know what he is emailing them about. He could have scraped a bunch of websites looking for "Link Exchanges" or "Guest Posts" and is going to email them asking about a link swap/guest posting opportunities, etc.

    I use Mail Merge Toolkit with Microsoft Word and Outlook. When you send emails from your server it appears as sp*m. However, if you send them from Outlook (via your server) there is something different about them that lets them reach the inboxes instead of the junk email (don't ask me why, I spent 12 hours trying to figure it out).

    Anyway, as CoyoteAssassin said, don't email them asking them to buy a product or service without their permission, because that is considered SP*M and is what ConstantContact, Aweber, etc. are for.

    The email marketing section here is fantastic. I'm new at e-mail (only 1 banned SMTP so far, lol) and I've learned tons there. But as always, nothing is better than testing!

    Wasn't the Email Marketing Section moved to Jr.Vip??

    Anyway, I've seen a lot of great threads for email marketing around the forum, starting from the very basics to the most expensive and unique solutions. A quick forum search will reveal most of the ones available.

    I am quick to judge because I do this for a living. I too was like you and started with Mail Merge Toolkit. It's great for businesses who have small lists of approved contacts. But it reveals your IP address in the email headers which is the best way to be suspended from an ISP. Only use this if your list expects to receive mail from you and then use it with caution.

    The reason Outlook is inboxing for you is not due to Outlook - it is because you are mailing through your ISP which most likely has a higher reputation than your own web server. That is why people use botnets to mail from hacked computers.

    Actually I have an Aweber account with 130K double opt-in subscribers in the make money online niche. I'm not new to this either.

    You can't really email people using Aweber type services without them opting-in to receiving emails from you, which is why I recommended mail merge toolkit.

    I feel like I should also clarify - I'm not mass mailing 1,000's of messages per day from my home computer/server, nor should anyone unless through an email marketing service. However, I feel that a good stepping stone between writing and email everyone by hand and paying $50/month for an email marketing service are tools like mail merge toolkit.

    Your experience is very common. I have found that my email business has opened my eyes to other IM businesses.

    Don't rely on the rented or purchased list , always rely on opt in and permission based email list at first place, secondly do proper configuration of resource because if you are sending from reputation less and new IPs or you haven't configured the email authentications or any loophole remain in the server setup your emails will be spam foldered no matter how good is the list.
    Therefore I recommend get a proper information about Commercial Emailing also what law like CAN-Spam act says about commercial emailing what major ISPs recommend when it comes to commercial emailing then start by choosing an ESP or setup your server for emailing. adnan.ahmed227 is my Skype if anyone wants commercial emailing solution.

    Hi,


    I have some answers to your qestions, Let me explain step by step:-


    1) To scrape your email there are different ways to do that. You can set a newsletter feature on your website to collect email addresses of your customers. Or else you can buy contact list from the internet.


    2) To build a good targeted email list is the most important for those who really want to do email marketing (bulk emailing). You can collect email address but to have reports of your list and have the interested recipient out of them would really be a great contact list. However after you have collected your contact list, I will recommend you to use the software "Cleanmyemaillist" do visit there website and filter your contact list to be cleaned up. As it will take all the duplicates out and will provide you all the real address at a side. So you will be aware of those email address who doesn't exists any more. That will also take all the Spam cops away from your list "Highly recommended". Now your contact list is ready and clean :) .


    3) Sending emails without SPAM is a big problem. People are really worried about there campaigns but all the bulk emailing service providers are not the same. As the market is grown and people are very interested in email marketing. I myself had really tried many bulk emailers companies but never had for what I really paid for. Al last after searching many companies I found what is real and they are very very serious about their customers. Now it been a long time I'm working by using there software. The best part is only dedicated SMTPs, Domains and IPs can stop you form been SPAM. Mostly companies provides Shared stuff which effects the campaign by sending the emails to SPAM folder not to the Inbox. Always bear in mind no body checks SPAM and after 30 days the SPAM email disappears from the SPAM folder. So I alway will prefer and suggest to take a platform that is dedicated. I have always found " Imailunlimited " as the best one for me. Also the list cleaning service can be provided by them as the software " Cleanmyemaillist " is there sister website. I will highly recommend them and I must say the features for there software are remarkable.


    Thanks for the paid attention.

    So i send about 50/50 unsolicited and solicited emails. 50/50 optin
    I use a suite of software to do this.
    I send about 60k emails out usually 1 time monthly and throttle my sending to 200 email accounts through various domains. I throttle the sending to 1 email per domain per smtp per 10 minutes this way it doesn't look like i'm spamming.
    I want to do this easier. Could I use my in office server to do this and use various proxies with a proxy switching program to disperse more emails more frequently without getting blacklisted? I'd like to send this newletter i send out for my company every week. The company smtp's that i'm paying for right now just got their ip black listed so i can't use them anymore. They said one person was sending out millions of emails. My plan was to use proxies though to have dynamic ip's because they are less likely to blacklist hundreds of ips for a few unsolicited. What do you guys think?
    Also don't use scrape box it is the most worthless program i have ever used. Scrape through search engines it will put the referrer on the site and will prevent spider bots from catching you. My site now uses 2 different bots to protect from scrape box and several scraping tools. There is some really nice software out there that is inexpensive that does amazing scraping with lots of throttling and proxy capabilities.
