    I read posts about scraping/extracting emails from websites using spider software.

    Spam just gets sent to the spam box these days, so what is the point?

    Shotgun tactic.

    If you got a legit 10k list and an average 3% conversion that's 300 sales.
    Scrape 1m emails and you only need a 0.003 conversion rate needed. Chances are some will get through spambox.

    What software do you recommend for sending scraped/extracted email lists?

    None. Build a legit list. Less costly, not illegal and many times easier to get repeat sales.
