Email solution independent from web site
Posted on 2006-06-23
I have a fairly big web site that might be sending hundreds of emails on one go, basically i want to create a independent tool to send these emails, I want it independent because it will be used by the main site (ASP) and by a web service (.net), and also because i don't want the web site to crash if some problem happens with sending the email, so i don't want it IIS managed!. I was thinking on a Console application (.net) but i don't know if ASP would be able to use it! I'm open to any suggestion as long as they are appropriate. Technically the tool should load the data from a database and send the emails on a queue (is this the SMTPs job or should it be the tool?).
Thnks for your help
