    I want to send to 1 million people same thing just once.

    Not multiple times.

    Is that considered spam?

    are they on a mailing list or you just grabbed emails. Most will probably go straight into spam boxes any.

    OP said just grabbed emails so mailchimp or others won't do it as it needs to be optin. Just grabbing emails and sending out emails once or one million times is spam and most providers will just send it straight to email spam boxes. Not worth paying for such campaigns. Far better to research and target

    Well it is targeted still. Even if it lands in spam box, I will still get replies. That's just how my business works.

    You would be better off asking a lawyer in your country than random people on an Internet Marketing Forum.

    They didnt opted in your list, so you are spamming them. "A message cannot be sent to a harvested email address"

    That's spam and no I don't think you'll get in trouble for just one blast. Any way I don't give legal advice, do ask a lawyer if you think you might end up in jail in your country.

    If you can legitimately explain how these emails were obtained with the sender consent, e.g. from a feedback form on your website, it's not spam.

    It is spam wither way you look.

    Mailchimp allows you with imported lists, but for 1M you will have to pay few thousand of dollars to import them. Unless you import 2k, send, then import another 2k, but as you say you need to sent a lot and this might not be an option. Anyway, you will be banned very soon due to high bounce and report rate.

    You can also send it from a server, but you need to send less than 500 per ip per day to not get into spam folder quickly. This assuming that the IP addresses are not black listed and you send the email right so it won't trigger spam filters.

    Anyway, this does not seems to be a viable business model.
