    If I understand you, you are looking to buy emails for spam purposes?? The best way to acquire email addresses is to offer a newsletter or something that people are willing to subscribe to.

    no its not spam purposes...

    its a similar setup to CPC charges, in other words, a targetted segment of a third party site will be sent emails related to our product offerings at a cost of X per email to the third party site.

    im trying to ascertain if their cost estimation is high or not...

    So have these people (your "targetted segment") opted in to receive email from you? If they have, fine, if not you'll be spamming them.

    Have these people opted in to receive email from you? If the answer is no then what you are doing is called spam.
