Limited Members - 125 points is fine, no worries.

Explain a little more detail as to what you want to do.

are you wanting to inserting a lot of emails into a database at one time, in one action?

What is this project going to be used for?
No offense, but this sounds like it could possibly be used for a Spam Email Program?

Dear Carrzkiss
No, this is not for Spam.
I have a list of clients and want to keep this list clean.
Adresses are added, deleted, unwanted and not existing taken out etc.
The list will have not more than 500 addresses.
 Yeah, you are right - didn't think about this possibility

KB = Knowledge Base
I do just about anything with ASP/SQL/Access (SQL Server).
Learning a lot as I go as well.

I do a lot of projects here on EE, and what I do I add to my KB.
I also do Code-For-Hire, for certain projects that are to HUGE to do here on EE.
(There is only so much that you can do for free you know?)

I have been doing ASP for about 5 yrs now, but the last 2 years of really been my best work.

Any thing you want to know about, just ask or check out my profile.

Have a good one.
