    Hello,

    I have a good internet connection with speedy PC. (I think).
    Can i install windows server 2008 and then configure SMTP on it, and send out emails?

    I mean this is a free way of sending out mass emails right? (If not we got to buy SMTP services)

    What are the pros and cons of this?

    Im no genius, can some one please point me into the right direction?

    thanks

    Con of this would be running a mailing server In your own house...

    Sorry, but just not a good Idea IMO due to legal Issues regarding mass spam mailing. Use an actual service :)

    Your ISP will probably ban you after the first blast. You'll receive 1000 complaints against you and you'll be looking for a new ISP.

    thanks for the comments, what if i change my ip addresses and the rest? Without using ISP's IPs?
    Can they still identify?

    Im from Asian country so those rules doesnt effect us much as they dont know much things...

    Take bartosimpsonio's advice.

    You cannot run mass spam from a singular home internet connection. Your ISP will shut you down in about 30 seconds if they're running a good operation, and you might get a half a day if your ISP is a bit slow to respond.

    Email spam is a massively complex thing to do successfully, mostly courtesy of Spamhaus. I suggest you forget about trying to DIY, considering your starting point was to run your own SMTP server 'from home'.
