    I know there have to be services here on BHW and elsewhere that will manage an email blast for me on a one-time basis. I have combination of lists that exceeds 1.5 M that I would like to leverage for a one-time mailing to drive traffic to my site. I cant just load them in outlook nor do I want to send them from my server at all in case I get spam complaints or worse. The site and the offer are legit, but all the same, no sense rocking the boat.

    I would be interested in knowing the following:
    1. What's the best way to go about doing this?
    2. Are there any known sources that you would highly recommend?
    3. Is there any way to keep from being completely scammed?
    4. What am I missing or what questions should i be asking but am not?

    Any and all opinions are much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I hope some email wizard can prove me wrong, but i would stay away from sending that list.

    A few years ago my boss insisted that I send an email to 1million list that he had acquired. I used a whitelabel bulk email system that the company had modified. It caused hell! Spam complaints all over the place angry phone calls. Spam Vigilante's tracking the emails.

    Personally I think you'll be better learning how to do it yourself - search on bhw you will find info. Think you can use program + proxies to get result.

    I tried to get this out-sourced a while ago. Gave my .75m list to about 4 people and never got a single email sent:(

    That's exactly what i'm trying to avoid (massive spam complaints as well as someone else just running away with my list). I was hoping to shortcut the process by asking for recommendations from the group because this is time sensitive and I'm totally buried. Otherwise, I'd usually leap at the opportunity to learn some new skills. I thought there was a thread dedicated to email marketing, but I couldn't find it. If it hasn't been deleted, chalk it up to going too fast and not taking enough time in the search. If it has been moved, recommendations to users who's threads have been valuable on this topic would be just as good.

    At the Moment I have the same Situation... I buyd a few huge lists and have alot of possible good clients..

    But now I think how to send them the emails ... ?

    A few things that I know allready, I wouldn't just spam them, but do it clever.

    Like to send just 1k to 10k emails in a day and only max 300 to 1 hoster like yahoo or google and all that time scheduled, not at once.
    And of course not just send the moneysite, but with a redirect service like tinyurl (not this one, but you know what I mean) etc.

    I would like to have some good recommendations too.

    Where can I find a good anonym email server?
    How can I make that my email isn't showd, but just a name?

    Just a few things.

    Btw. I can sell some big lists, if anyone want some, pm me.
