Hello,

I am trying to implement some sample code provided at http://www.eggheadcafe.com/articles/20030720.asp .  However, I cannot get the actually threading to execute.

If I simply call it synchronously, the code works fine.  

Please advise.

Thank you.  Sorry for the delay in response.  Am I correct to assume from this link that if decided to use this class to send an email blast to several hundred addresses at once..it would queue appropriately..keep the system from bogging down while all the emails are sent?  I believe that is what the code is doing.  Can you confirm?
