    I haven't mainly because it wouldn't do you much good because of the Federal Anti-SPAM Law it would be against the law to send unsolicited bulk type emails and the government is really trying to crack down on that and I know most all ISP's now automated buttons to forward such SPAM to the ISP for forwarding to the FCC.

    don't waste your money. email marketing, unless it's something a user truly opts in for, is useless and getting off on the wrong foot with a customer via those that hate spam is not a good way to get your business in front of them. many of the addresses you might get through a less-than-reputable address provider would not likely cover your area, are invalid addresses, or are culled from the web by robots.

    now, if you wanna sell counterfeit viagra to provide off-season income, that's your best route. :)
