    This is just an idea I had right now about an email marketing campaign. Since Tor hides your ip address and uses 5000 relays to send your data request then surely its next to impossible for the IP to get marked as spammy since it would be the proxy being used?

    what do you think?

    Tor IPs are usually blacklisted.

    The IP of the proxies on the TOR network can and do get blacklisted/flagged as spammy. The entire list of TOR nodes is public. For example, here's one copy of the full list:
    https://www.dan.me.uk/tornodes

    Although, it's important to note that your IP address isn't necessarily relevant to getting email spam into someone's inbox. The recipient doesn't necessarily have your IP address; they (generally) will only have the IP address of the server of your email client. It should be noted that whether or not a recipient has your IP address information depends on what email client you're using and how they've configured their headers:

    TOR isn't necessarily a problem for email spam (although it can be), but it's not a complete solution, either.

    thanks for the info. It seems like a hit or a miss then. Maybe not worth the time

    It would be possible through webmails only, to prevent the webmail used several times with multiple spammy-accounts to blacklist your IP... (not sure if many webmails are doing that, but I guess yes - Client IP reputation is probably used by webmails).

    so manually sending them through webmail providers rather than email software? Wouldn't it be a waste of time if the majority of Tor IP's are likely to be blacklisted in the first place?

    I don't know, never tried. I know that TOR ip addresses are massively blacklisted by VPS providers especially those where we can pay with cryptos, but webmails, i dont know.

    from what i've read they are blacklisted by most if not all webmails. Theres only one email marketing provider ive found that accepts Tor IP's but shit software. I think its a waste of time but was worth exploring the idea
