Mifla, if you do not have permission from the recipients to send these e-mails, there is a good chance that what your are sending will get classified as spam, a.k.a. UCE ... unsolicited commercial e-mail.
Bad things can and likely will happen to you.
a customer of mine has pre-qualifed business clients ... his clients have consented in advance to receive annoucements from my customer about product upgrades ... one of his pre-qualifed business clients forget their agreement and complained to my customer's
isp ... that isp blocked my customer's internet access without even contacting my customer first.
Mifla, learn how e-mail works ... quick, very simplified summary ...
your computer (client) ==> your smtp server ==> MTA ==> MTA ==> recipient's POP server ===> recipient
Chances are good that your millions of e-mails will be detected and blocked by a well managed MTA.
see, for example:
Also, the recipients' computers will likely block your e-mails.
Mifla, perhaps you can share with us why your millions of e-mails are not spam?
P.S.: if a site like proxyfire.net is giving you ip addresses of open, unprotected SMTP servers, it is highly likely that those open servers are already blocked ( i could be wrong ).
Mifla, to use any SMTP server, you need to know what that server requires in order for you to use it.
For example, i can not use my isp's server unless i provide both an account and a valid password for that account.
