I am sure this is a stupid question but here goes.
I have been ticked off by my Hosting company for sending out a newsletter using CDO & ASP to 25k people a month. it has been annoyingly hard to find an alternatiove so I thought about doing it on my local machine using localhost (I am running XP pro) the script takes the addresses form a MYSQL database at the hosting company but sends them from my machine. This unexpectidle worked fine but I am unsure on how the mails are being sent. is it usnig my ISPs SMTP server? What is the downsides of doing this?
Any help appreciated.
