Exchange 2007 - Assigning Email Priority

Hi,

I have no idea whether or not this is possible, but thought I would ask the question.

Once a week marketing send out an email to 3000 plus people with an attachment of roughly 1MB. Our outbound emails go from our exchange -> mail marshal -> messagelabs.

But they take ages to go and clog up the email queue.

Is there a way of assigning priorities to emails so that the bulk sent email gets a low priority and everything else has higher priority?

Thanks

If you are sending from outlook, begin to select yourself "Low" under priority.

You can also try to schedule the mails over 900k for later delivery.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

For your later question, I knew it under ex2k3, but never asked myself under exchange 2k7.. i will have a look

For the queing priority, i should have specified that it is disabled by default... you will have to enable it (read the technet article, you will have to edit a config file) :) )

Exchange is a very poor bulk emailing tool. It cannot automatically deal with the bounce backs and unsubscribe requests. For sending out that number of email I would suggest using a bulk email tool which can manage the email in a more efficient way.

I haven't used anything enough to make a recommendation. Google bulk email tools - every link, including all the adverts may well be suitable.
Ideally it wants to be on its own server and IP address and possibly domain, so when it get blacklisted (sorry to say but bulk emailing will usually end up on a blacklist at some point) it isn't your production system that is blacklisted.

Another option is to out source it. Lots of those around and most of the outsourced providers have arrangements with th major email services to get the messages through.
