Purchasing a B2B contact list, or directory, is legal and in some areas it may also be legal to send unsolicited emails. However, Mailjet does not allow the use of these lists, and sending unsolicited emails is against our Acceptable Use Policy and our Terms of Service.
› Gmail recommends using only opt-in addresses
› Hotmail does not allow unsolicited commercial emails at all
What happens if you send unsolicited emails to B2B contacts at these providers?
It’s simple - you will get blacklisted, none of your emails will get through and your Mailjet account may be suspended or terminated. Even if you have a dedicated IP, sending unsolicited emails cannot be allowed as it may lead to all our IPs being blocked.
We understand this is quite complicated and may make sending your business emails more difficult. But this is what is required to fight spam and provide better deliverability results for all our customers.
