Hi Alex,

We have a similar newsletter of about 3000 that we send monthly to our
members. What we actually do is use a product called GroupMail but send
through the ex2000 server as a normal smtp server from inside our

This third party application is quite nice as it will insert delays in
the sending process, so for example we pause for 5 seconds every 20
emails. This prevents upstream relays assuming it's a flood and blocking
the send.

Subject: [exchangelist] Batch e-mails

Hi Everyone,

I need to send push e-mails to my customers on a weekly basis. I am
Exchange 5.5 on a 2K system.

What would be the most efficient way of doing this? We will be sending
batches of 3000 or so e-mails a time (this is because Exchange can only
process 5000 simultaneous e-mails - please correct me if I am wrong).

I get the e-mails from an SQL DB and import them into a .csv file, then
import that into my Exchange box.

Any suggestions?
