Number of CC'd emails sent out at the same time
Posted on 2008-09-29
We have an Exchange 2003 email server using a Dell 2850 server 8 gig ram.
How many people can be CC'd in a single email at the same time without causing significant loss of LAN or Internet performance?
We have a Bulk Emailer; however, the politics of a few are trying to say 500 cc'd emails do nothing to the network performance. I know this is false. A short time after the emails are sent some as little as 300 receipients in a single email chokes the entire network.
Can anyone with experience in this area give me a number for the above and also a number per hour of the above that can be sent out. (Example of answer needed: Email with 25 receipents 3 time per hour.)
What I am looking for is a policy with some techinical explaination to counter "need" to send bulk email through Exchange 2003 via Outlook.
Thanks in Advance
