email program that allows 3rd party list upload

Postby Mary Mac » Tue Jun 23, 2009 1:17 pm

Hi,

I was wondering if someone knew of an email program that allows you to upload a 3rd party list. This list is from a very reliable source that they used a while back that agreed to accepting emails. It's a very large list of about 50,000 names. I'm not sure how to go about it.

Thanks,
Mary

Many email programs let you import lists, but I don't know any serious provider that will let you send any email to these subscribers unless they CONFIRM their subscription. It's not enough your statement that sometime, 1 day ago, 1 week ago, 1 year ago or years ago they agreed to accept your emails. Everyone from your imported list will have actually to RESUBSCRIBE.

Adrian is correct, I don't think there is any good provider out there that permits that without confirming their subscription or resubbing to the list.

Be cautious though if you do find a company that says they do because not only could they get in a big hot mess but you could as well and your ISP would not take it lightly if for some reason you got a lot of spam complaints.

Aweber is a great service. I can get you a link if you need one.

Thanks for your replies. How do I get someone to resubscribe if I can't email them. I really am quite new at trying to build a list and was just wondering the best way to go about getting in touch with these people with an introductry email to see if they would be interested in resubscribing.

I did just open an aweber account.

Thanks,
Mary
