Be very, very careful.

What is the real definition of an opt-in mailing list?

Not one that you opted into to be sold, and sold and sold.

I call it financial suicide.

If your host operates zero tollerence on spamming and your return mailbox is bomarded with 'undelivered message'... and it will be. You business could be shut down before you could say spam.
