Also, I'm seeing people say that you should clean your list before you start blasting it.. how do you clean it and what is a spamtrap? I'm guessing 'fake' email addresses specifically created and sold to capture spammers email to add to blacklists?
Can someone walk me through this getting started? I have a list. I want to clean it, then email it 1-2x per month. I got it from InfoFree.com "Businesses with Email" and is a select type of professionals I want to send a newsletter to as they are often in a position to refer me business.
I was reading and thinking I would use Sendblaster Pro and mail merge through Outlook with a SendGrid dedicated IP. Am I on the right track?
