Please could someone kindly provide me with some advice on the best way to achieve the following...
1 - I need to send the same email to a large number of recipients (several thousand) whose addresses reside in a table
2 - I do NOT have access to SQLSendMail so intend to cycle through a recordset using a DTS script and send via SMTP
3 - I believe that sending mails individually is probably not too efficient so considering adding to a recipient list
4 - If writing a script to add all (comma/semi-colon delimited), I believe it will exceed the maximum number of recipients
5 - If adding them to batches, what would be a suitable number and what is the most efficient code to do this?
6 - Is there anyway of creating an SMTP grouping or distribution list on the fly perhaps or is number 5 better?
If you have any example code to share, I would be very grateful indeed!
