> Hello mailman guys..
> ok, I have a dedicated server .. and I use mailman to send a daily newsletter.. I recenly got a list of 1,000,000 email addresses that I want to use to promote my website and mailing list .. can I create another mailman installation and add these addresses to it and use it to send an invitation to visit my website and join my mailing list without the risk of getting blocked by hotmail or yahoo or others because these emails I bought will have many faulty ones and will generate excessive bounces..
> is mailman programmed in a way to avoid getting blocked by hotmail and others?? or do u think it's better to buy another server and use it for promotion?

I may sound harsh but you cannot just get a list of 1,000,000 just
like that. I do not think Mailman creators wanted their product to be
used as a tool for spammers. Unless, these people have volunteered to
be sent offers.

I am not suggesting any solution because I am very much against such practices.
