But wait there is an even better deal. You can get a CD with 15,000,000 addresses for only $199. "Now" you might think, "if I can 5,000-30,000 customers from one million, how many customers can I get with 15 million".

The first question I would have, is how are you going to send out your 15 million E-mails without having your ISP cancel your account. Most free ISP's put a limit of 50 E-mails you can send out at one time. Let's see 15 million divided by 50 would equal 300,000 mailings. Figure 20 minutes per mailing, it would take over 6 years, working 8 hours a day, to send a mailing to everyone onrepparttar list. Ever wonder how many of those addresses will be valid next month, let alone 6 years from now?

Does that mean you will have to wait 6 years before you can start packing your bags? Not hardly - there are some people whose main goal in life is getrepparttar 127582 E-mail accounts of spammers canceled. There is even software that makesrepparttar 127583 complaints automatically.

But you think, I have software that can send out many thousands at a time. Granted, but all this means is your account will be canceled by your ISP faster. Most keep "logs" of E-mail sent out, and examinerepparttar 127584 content of large mailings. If it is a commercial message - Bingo - You're Cancelled.
