Location: In a state of confusion
Didn't you know that spam is illegal? It's invasive, and dangerous. Domains have anti-spam policies in place for a reason. Its against the law. Their mail servers are set up to filter, report, reject or redirect spam.
Sending 6x to each address was beyond overkill. I'm surprised the domains didn't disable all your accounts.
The ebay purchase was a waste of your money. A billion addresses? really? I can guarantee that 99% of those are no good.
Sending out emails to random addesses is NOT email marketiing. Its spamming. An email marketing campaign is sending out announcements to a targeted audience that would more than likely to be interested in whatever it is that your message contains.
Examples of this would be sending out mail to:
current or prior customers
potential customers that have indicated an interest in the subject of the email message
friends and/or family
The obvious answer to your question is: Stop the use of this email list (or any other) forever!
I wish we were better strangers....
I'll always cherish the original misconception I had of you.
