I suggest you hire an outside company to do your mass emailing.  I have seen some companies marked as spammers, as well as clogging up thier normal email traffic flow.

If it's to an outside companies it would depend on the SPam Filter Settings, some are loose, some very tight.  We have tightened ours to avoid the mass amounts and will release the undelivered's upon request.  It's a fine line - to loose and you get Viagra Mail, To tight and yo loose busiess realted mail.

If within house mass email - just send from Admin account with access to a Distribution List encapsulating all users.

Hope this helps.

It wouldn't matter if you were using Exchange or sendmail.  If you are sending out mass e-mail and haven't properly registered with the major ISPs you will get blacklisted.

Exchange is also a very poor bulk emailing tool. The performance of the bulk email will be bad, with no bandwidth available to you because Exchange will try and use it all. Exchange also cannot cope with the bounce backs and unsubscribe requests.

Either outsource it or purchase a product to do the bulk emailing for you and run it on a separate internet connection and server. It is possible to do the bulk emailing yourself, but you have to be very careful. For most companies it is far easier to outsource.

Yes we do outsource our bulk email... but a lot of our users send out emails to a lot of out side emails... we tried to restrict them to 400 emails.... so is that restriction good enough or i need to go lower?

I have seen sites with the level as low as 10. If you have another service then going lower than 400 might be an idea to encourage them to use another service.
