I would advise against bulk email lists for the most part. It really depends on the type of business you are in. Ideally, you would have a marketing/internet marketing person handling your email marketing campaigns.

While I would never go near bulk emailing, I think a very viable alternative for many is to advertise within newsletters that are closely related to your offer. Also consider adding your own newsletter subscription service, while it takes time - building your own list can be worth gold.

I would never trust those bulk email products to market a brand. you may find other uses for them like fishing for possible leads.

Use constant contact. Its very cheap and easy to track records. Building your own database is good way to be not flagged as SPAM. Company directories are the reliable sources for company contact information.

Before sending any sales mailing about the introduction of your company you need to have opt-in email lists. This will make your mailing valuable.

I also use vertical response as a previous poster mentioned for our side business. It is very affordable, although I'm not sure how big your list is, ours is still pretty small.

I think it's ok to start out with outlook, it will add a personal touch, however, you may get more attention if you do HTML emails. Also you can do some tracking and improve upon your messages.

Newsletter for customers is great, bulk email is good if its not done repeatly over & over.

The right newsletter can give great insite without being clogged in your target audiences inbox ^_-
