Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Mass Email Sending Control

On my Exchange 2003 I need to be able to send out mass emails to my clients, close to 3000 every two days. Is there a way to set up my Exchange Server to somehow manage the sending of the emails. Right now we get a bounce back messages:

"Could not deliver the message in the time limit specified.  Please retry or contact your administrator. < #4.4.7>"

I was wondering if Exchange Server 2003 can be configured to que the emails and send them out 10 or 20 at a time.

My server configurations are:
Dell PowerEdge 840 with Intel Xeon 2.66GHz, 4GB RAM, 260GB RAID-1 Hard Drive.

Don't use Exchange.
Exchange is a very poor bulk emailing tool. If you are sending out that volume of email I would get a bulk email tool, which can process the bounce messages, unsubscribe requests etc.

What tool would you recommend?
I cannot make a recommendation because I outsource bulk emailing for all of my clients. Do a Google search, you will get tons of software applications.

It really should have its own server, own internet connection and a subdomain. If you are sending out that number of messages then there is a high chance that you will get blacklisted. Doesn't matter if it is all opt in or whatever. All it takes is someone to leave or change companies and not know how to get the address removed and the message will get flagged.
