Scared of getting flagged as a spammer?
Maintain your sender reputation
Cold email marketing is effective and also totally legal when done correctly. You aren't a spammer, but it's right to be concerned that you could be marked as one, and see your deliverability for all your email campaigns plummet.
Email service providers watch for companies sending emails to addresses that don't really exist, and will be quick to penalize you if you overdo it. That's why you need to verify addresses before starting your campaigns.
