SMTP slower for bulk mailing. How to use Exchange server instead using ASP ?
Posted on 2001-08-11
I have an application which is written in ASP which runs on IIS 4 using CDONTS and SMTP server. The problem with this is it is taking a long time to send mails if I want to send the mail to a larger group of recipients. It potentially freezes my server for long time. Looks like the implementation of SMTP is such a way that it will take the message and try to send to each recipient seperately. I heard that Exchange server is the best option in such situation. I have an exchange server running on the same network. Can I use that for sending mails with out using SMTP. Is it just a configuration change or do I need to recode the page to use exchange server. Any one has this kind of experience ? Your help will be highly appreciated
