Using found email addresses

Question
Is it okay to use email addresses I find in the CC: field of other people‚Äôs messages to promote my business? 
Answer
It is absolutely NOT "okay" to use email addresses you've found -- anywhere. It is absolutely inappropriate to hijack email addresses just because they are there. If you want to use the addresses, you must first ask permission.
